In this entry in the This Is My Story series, readers meet nine-year-old Bahishta, whose family moved to the U.S. from Afghanistan. She introduces her parents and sister, their Muslim faith, and the traditional dress, foods, and customs of their homeland. Each page carries a captioned photo or a map as well as a short, informative paragraph. The statement that the family moved to the U.S. because of wars in its homeland is typical of the matter-of-fact approach of the nicely flowing text, which finds a good balance between information and human interest. Color photos offer appealing glimpses of Bahishta's family life. A glossary and brief lists of books and Web sites are appended. Carolyn Phelan
