Afghan Dreams: Young Voices of Afghanistan

by Tony O'Brien and Mike Sullivan
Photographed by Tony O'Brien

Published by Bloomsbury, 2008
69 pages
ISBN: 978-1-59990-287-6

Ages 9-14

Tony O’Brien and Mike Sullivan introduce readers to children living in Kabul and in rural Afghan villages through intimate photographic portraits and brief narrative profiles that offer a glimpse of their lives and dreams. The introduction provides readers with a brief but essential grounding in the geography and current political turmoil of the Afghan nation as well as the ongoing war being fought there by the United States, and the poverty that dominates so many children’s lives. The faces and profiles that follow represent the hope that is Afghanistan’s future in a volume that will help children here put faces and stories with the name of a country that many will recognize from the news.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
