This book was really good. I would rate it a 8 out of 10 because how the author described the way Afghanistan was. For example, the women were kicked out of school and the little girl the book is about (Parvana) can’t go to school either. Although she can’t go to school, and help her family, she does good things for her family. There were a lot of interesting thing that happen in the book and some not so interesting things. She had a lot of drama in her life and she kept on pushing. In the book, Parvana was brave. She did a lot of things other girls wouldn’t do.

Hi, my name is Wilson. I read the book called The Breadwinner. The book is realistic fiction about a girl named Parvana who goes through a lot of trouble to help her family. It provides many facts and how she becomes a hero. Parvana is a young girl in her family and very brave. She lives in a bad neighborhood in Afghanistan. She sees the Taliban doing very bad things to people. She knew she needed to help out.
This book is very interesting because it shows this young woman become from a little kid to a young adult. She is a hero because she took risk to provide her family with food, water and money. Parvana had some rough time but she had to deal with it. Parvana is a wonderful young woman with a passion for helping and saving her family. Parvana has seen some weird stuff, but she is still a hero.

Breadwinner is a good book for students in middle school to read because it teaches you the rights women have in other countries such as Afghanistan. It teaches the differences from our country, America. It teaches you stuff you probably didn’t know before such as women can’t take the bus, they have to walk with a man and can’t go outside without a man . It was very detailed that you can picture what she was saying in your head. Books like this teaches young kids like us how to appreciate because other countries don’t have it as good as we do. Some kids look up to Parvana because she was a brave little girl like Malali. She teaches kids that there’s always hope.

I absolutely love this book. It has such a strong message to it. In addition, people can be aware and wiser on what happens to other countries. Even though it is fiction it has facts on what really goes on over there. Also, you could visualize whats going on in the book. Very few books would give you a clear picture on what is going on. But, “ The Bread Winner” does let you picture exactly what is going on. This book is so inspiring. Best book ever.
I give it a 5 !

This book is very inspiring it kind of makes you sit and think about what you have and how much we don’t appreciate things. And it shows us how woman and kids have to go through, and its very sad.

In my opinion, I liked this book. It was really good. Parvana, an 11 year old girl has to struggle and make a lot of changes in her life to keep her family safe. As conditions for the family grow desperate, Parvana must disguise herself has a boy. Women didn’t have the chance to go to school in Afghanistan and it’s insane how women couldn’t go outside without a man. She had to work to bring food for their family. I think people who have the opportunity to go to school should take advantage of it. Women in Afghanistan didn’t have the opportunity to go to school, and if there was a way to get an education they would do what they can to have one. This book was sad because of all of her struggles.
