This primary aged book that brings up some serious topics about real life outside of the classroom. These kids are having to work at such a young age to be able to live their life. The overall goal in this book is that the kids want to go to school and learn how to read and write. When this dream finally comes true, they are super excited ( )

This book is good for primary and 3rd grade students. There are a lot of words so for younger grades it would be good for a read aloud.
This book is about a little girl, her home gets flooded and taken away by the water. She has to move into the city to make more money and find work for her family. Her and her sister work together hammering bricks. She day dreams all day about reading and how if she knew how to read she could be a teacher, or doctor. She saves up money and goes to the local library and grabs a book. She rushed home to show her family and non of them can read. Her father says "they have to go to school soon". Yasmin is very excited and hopes and dreams that she will be able to go soon. She ends up being able to go to school and learn to read.
This book is great. I would like to have this in my classroom library. It shows children that reading is important and that some other children don't get to be in schools. Education and reading is really important and this book celebrates that. ( )

3-4 grade level book about two girls who live in Bangladesh and want to go to school but have to work in order to provide for their family. It goes through and tells how everyone in the family starts to work extra hard in order to save money for a book, pencils, and finally school. While it is a sweet story about girls going to school and people working hard for what they want, it also depicts this group of people as poor people who can't afford many things and live in poverty. While I'm sure some of them live this way I don't think it is the ideal way to show that group of people.

This book shows the amazing journey of a young girl from Bangladesh who immigrates with her family in search of a better life and dreams of going to school and learning to read. Yasmin's family was forced out of their home due to a natural disaster, so they moved to a new country where the mother took up work as a house cleaner, the children smash bricks, and the father is a salesman yet the family is still poor. This book is a good representation of the realities in South Asian countries today, and it would be perfect to get students interested in international politics. This book also demonstrates the importance of education and how having an education can open up new opportunities. ( )

The main message of this book is to show that when a family works together and perseveres, they can accomplish goals impossible to accomplish alone.
I enjoyed this book for many reasons. I loved the message of the importance of education. For example, in order to send the two daughters to school to learn to read, every family member pitches in and works extremely hard to earn more money. The girls smash more bricks than any other girl at their workplace, the father picks up a more arduous trading route, and the mother pitches in more as well. The family sacrifices a great deal, all for the sake of education. It truly shows how precious literacy is.
I also enjoyed this book because it touches on the struggle of moving from a rural area to a city. For example, as the narrator rides into the city with her father and sister she takes in the vast number of people, the vast number of trading stalls, the vast number of smells, sights, and buildings, and then reminisces about life back in the rural area. She talks about how she misses the quietness and simplicity of it all, from the flowing river to riding her water buffalo. I appreciated that the author added in this element. It gave more perspective of the family for the reader and gave the characters more depth. You realize all of the different struggles of the family. Not only are they working extremely hard to pay for school, but they are still trying to adjust to a vastly different lifestyle. ( )
