Yusra wants to play in the park playground however her dad tells her that it is not safe to play, it is old and needs to be rebuild. She asks him how would that happen. He informs her that the first thing they could do is write an email to their mayor to bring it to their attention. Furthermore, they can inform the neighbours and ask them to write to the mayor as well. With each step of the way, the reader chooses what Yusra does next. The ending is corresponds to the choices the reader makes.



I love this book. It is one of twelve in the series and the second book to include a visibly Muslim character. (I have already posted a review on the other book) All books in the series have important messages that are larger than the character themselves. Shows them in a simple storyline that they have the ability to make changes in different circumstances, whether it is managing conflict/emotions or seeing positive changes that affect those around them. Having Muslim families portrayed in a light that makes them part of their local community at large is a wonderful thing. When they come to the end of the book, the reader is challenged to go back to the beginning and make diferenc choices and discuss the difference in the outcome. This is a great book to use as a learning tool for the little ones. ๐ŸŒธ
