Book Uncle and Me - Uma Krishnaswami, Julianna Swaney

Staff Pick

In all of India, there is no better lending library than Book Uncle’s. With a panoply of volumes spread out on planks of wood, a small tin can for donations, and a sign that reads: Books. Free. Give one. Take one. Read-Read-Read, Yasmin cannot resist a daily visit. So when the city requires Book Uncle to purchase a permit he cannot afford, Yasmin is determined to find a solution. With the help of her friends and several adults, Yasmin takes up this important cause just in time for the mayoral election. In her most recent book, Book Uncle and Me (Groundwood, $14.95), Uma Krishnaswami shows young readers that they can have a voice and an impact even before they have a vote. Ages 8-11.
