Average rating

Everyone seems to have an idea for the science project except for Yasmin! After some failed experiments, Yasmin’s snack break with Nani inspires an idea. Together they use kitchen science for sweet success! Yasmin the Scientist is part of the Yasmin series. Yasmin is a spirited girl who's always on the lookout for those ""a-ha"" moments to help her solve life's little problems. Taking inspiration from her surroundings and her big imagination, she boldly faces any situation, though sometimes her imagination can get a bit carried away! A creative thinker and curious explorer, Yasmin and her multi-generational Pakistani family will delight and inspire readers. Yasmin books: - are written by an #OwnVoices author and illustrator team; - feature a strong girl character with a knack for solving problems in unique ways; - subtly weave Muslim traditions into fun, relatable stories with universal themes.



I love her character and read most of her book.

My favourite character was Yasmin and her nanny, who helped her make the popping lemonade for the science fair. I would recommend this book to a friend.
