Transcript of The Breadwinner
One day, before Parvana was turned into a boy, she runs away from the Taliban and encouters a family friend
Mrs.Weera, a former gym teacher. Mrs. Weera moves
in Parvana's house and supports their family. Mrs.
Weera is the one who decides to transform
Parvana. We would recommend the book Breadwinner because it is a very engrossing, and entertaining page turner. Parvana is a strong character who showed much bravery and kindness by dressing as a boy in front of the much feared Taliban and bringing home sad strangers left alone on the street. Whether you like action, adventure, or just a good read in general, this book is suitable for YOU. By: Deborah Elllis THE BREADWINNER . Parvana Parvana is an eleven year old Afghan girl who was forced to turn into a boy after her father was taken away by the Taliban for receiving a foreign education.
In the diorama, Parvana can be seen dressed as a boy (acting as her cousin Kaseem from Jalalabad) sitting in her fathers old market stall. Before her father was taken away, he used to sell his furniture as well as translate letters. Parvana learned from her father and was able to continue his profession after he left, eaerning enough money to feed her family.
Parvana's mother, her sister Nooria, and siblings Maryam and Ali move to Mazar-e-Sharif so Nooria can get married and recieve a better education.
The Breadwinner takes place in Afghanistan, when the Taliban had the greatest influence, before America arrived.
