On the case: Yasmin the Detective

by Saadia Faruqi

#YasmintheDetective #NetGalley

This illustrated chapter book is a short mystery for beginning readers. In it, Yasmin is on the case. Who is taking her grandmother’s things? Adults will know right away and some kids may too. Nonetheless, they may be happy to have a book that they can read on their own.

There are some very good resources at the back of the book. As Yasmin is Pakistani American there are some common Pakistani words and their English translations, some fun facts about Pakistan, a binocular making craft and questions to think about. All of these short sections add to this title’s value.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Capstone-Picture Window Books for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
