Start your review of Yasmin the Friend
Yasmin has an idea of what her and her friends will play when Emma and Ali come over. So does Ali. And Emma. Ali is learning to juggle. Emma was recently gifted a jump rope.

From the very beginning, Baba encourages Yasmin to consider and ask what her friends want to do, which is hard because Yasmin really wants to play dress-up. When she complains that they are not being very good friends because they are doing what they want to do, the question is unavoidable: just who is being the bad friend?
