Children's Songs from Afghanistan by Louise Pascale

To the children of Afghanistan. May their harts forever be filled with song. This wonderful songbook is a small treasure that connect today's Afghan children with generations past. My own children have already memorised these songs, as I had when I was a child. With all the destruction that Afghan children have witnessed, it is my hope that this collection brings a sense of joy, belonging and identity. - Khaled Hosseini, Author of The kite Runner & A Thousand Splendid Suns When I listen to songs, it brings back the wonderful memories of my peaceful and happy childhood in Kabul. Some of those beautiful memories are gone forever, others are being gradually restored. This songbook contains some of the jewels of our vibrant culture and gives back to the children a part of their rich heritage. It would be devastating to lose these songs, an important part of our folklore. I am so grateful for the opportunity to take small part in the re-creation of these lost treasures. - Shamim Jawad, Founder of Ayenda Foundation: The Afghan Children Initiative. If there is a world here in 2108, children will save us. hooray for this book. - Pete Seeger I'm happy that Afghanistan's children are fortunate to have this positive light that they have been deprived of for decades. This songbook hands back a part of their culture and childhood that will hopefully grow for generations to come. As an Afghan-American, I am thankful that this songbook was created. - Halima Karzai
