Children's Literature
Vivid photographs with simple text paint a different picture of a world that we know. Of course, war has destroyed many lives as well as great buildings in this humble Country called Afghanistan, but the culture has survived. Rich in tradition, the Muslims thrive on celebrating festivals, studying the Qur'an, and going on Pilgrimages. For many years, games, festivals, listening to music, dancing, and sports were against the law. Now they are finally free to do these things that Americans take for granted. Don't be surprised to glance up in their sky and see colorful kites gracing the heavens. It is now their favorite pastime. Their poetry, pottery, and their folktales will find their way into anyone's heart as well if time is taken to discover them. Erinn Banting depicts Afghanistan in way that opens our minds and allows us the opportunity to explore their world. He also captures how life has changed for the better in this once dark and forgotten place. 2003, Crabtree Publishing Company,
