This story gives a glimpse of life in rural Bangladesh for younger readers. The story focuses on the role of girls and women in modern Bangladeshi society while also touching on topics of traditional Bangladeshi art (alpanas), history (Ekushey/ International Mother Language Day), and microfinance. A good story for students in grades 3 to 6.
