Our new book is The Breadwinner by Deborah Ellis. This story illustrates some of the differences between our culture in the West and that in the Middle East. These differences are particularly clear when it comes to the treatment of males versus females, young versus old, educated versus uneducated, peace versus war. 

A wonderful story about a family who experience, first hand, the war in Afghanistan. Although we have just begun reading this book, it has provided lots of opportunities so far to discuss, education, family, religion, ethics and freedom.
