Afghan Dreams: Young Voices From Afghanistan

Afghan Dreams: Young Voices From Afghanistan by Tony O'Brien, Michael P. Sullivan
Award-winning photojournalist Tony O’Brien and filmmaker Mike Sullivan went to Afghanistan to interview and photograph children of a wide range of ages, from varied ethnic backgrounds, and with very different daily lives. As each one tells his or her story the reader is placed right in the middle of everyday life as it is lived by children in the midst of one of the world’s most enduringly conflict-ridden countries.

...a sensitive, poignant, and respectful look at the lives of these young people. It avoids sentimentality and politicizing. While the book will need an introduction, it offers Western children insight into a country and society often featured in the news. This is a timely, relevant, and well-executed offering.
