About the Book
Breshna is a young girl in Afghanistan. Because her family is poor, she has to help her mother with work to earn money, although what she really longs to do is go to school. One day, she is offered the chance to attend a private school with a scholarship. Will her life finally change for the better?
The story of Breshna brings readers into a world they might know little about. Written by an Afghan author and illustrated with photos from contemporary Afghanistan, this story will challenge you to understand a culture and circumstances that might be very different from your own. What will you do with this new awareness?
Includes pre-reading vocabulary, cultural information, and discussion questions to prepare you to read the story of Breshna. A post-reading note from the translator and discussion/writing questions help you process the ideas and information.
