Ancient Maps

One afternoon Yasmin sat reading with Baba.

A long time ago, explorers used big paper maps to find their way, Baba said.

What’s an explorer? asked Yasmin.

Someone who discovers new places. An adventurer, Baba said.

Yasmin looked at the maps in Baba’s book. There were straight roads and curvy roads. There were lakes and rivers and forests.

I want to be an explorer! she said.

Well, then, the first thing you’ll need is a map, Baba replied.

Yasmin clapped her hands. I’ll make a map of our neighborhood.

Good idea, Baba said.

Yasmin found crayons and paper. She drew their house. Down the street was the market. Near that was the park.

"This is excellent, jaan!" Baba said, using his sweet name for her.

    This is a really great beginning chapter book for early readers (Kindergarten-first grade). Yasmin is a Pakistani child who is creative, insightful, and problem-solves in the stories in this book. The stories feature elements of her everyday life -- a trip to the park, time with grandparents, art projects, etc. It is great for seeing a child of color in everyday situations (not just in civil rights or historic text).The stories are short and a good length for a read-aloud or independent reading.

    This is a really cute book about Yasmin, a young Pakistani American girl in 2nd grade. The book is made up of four stories where Yasmin has a problem to solve. It shows the creativity and problem solving that a young person can do. It also shows how important it is to try and to be confident in yourself. Yasmin's Pakistani family and heritage are seamlessly integrated into the story, such as discussing the clothing that her mother wears. There are not a lot of illustrations in this book, but those that are present certainly add to the story, especially showing Yasmin's successful problem solving. This is an early chapter book that would be great in a primary class library or family library. I love the multi-cultural aspect in the story as well as in the back pages where we find a glossary and fact sheet that teach a little Urdu and Pakistani culture. There is also a simple recipe and craft. A great little book that would be a great selection for a public or school library as well. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley.
