Bantam Rahman’s The Library Bus tells the simple story of Pari, an Afghan girl who’s about 5 years old. Pari’s mother drives a bookmobile to villages and refugee camps where girls have no schools.
It’s a cute story to introduce children to Afghanistan, but I’d like more character development. Even small children have distinct personalities.
The story with its charming illustrations is worth a read.
