Review: Razia’s Ray of Hope: One Girl’s Dream of an Education

Razia's Ray of Hope: One Girl's Dream of an Education
Razia’s Ray of Hope: One Girl’s Dream of an Education by Elizabeth Suneby
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The illustrations for this book are just perfect, evoking the faces of real people and bringing home the message that Razia is a representative of so many real girls in real villages all across Afghanistan. The text is a little ploddy and pedantic, which sometimes happens when the author has an informational mission rather than a literary one. That’s okay, though. I am still glad to have read it and think it would make a great read-together for an upper elementary class learning about conditions for kids around the world.
