Dear Elsians ,

       We’d recommend that you take the chance and spend
time reading your new novel “ The Kite Runner “ during the
vacation so as to facilitate matters when you come back
after holiday .

The Kite Runner is a real master piece , so don’t miss the
chance of enjoying reading it as it’s an exposure to
different cultures in different countries . It’s written by
Khaled Hosseini who is an Afghanistani writer !

N.B. Questions were set for you to help you while reading
, so you are asked to read & answer those simple
questions. It will even be tackled inside classes in a
different way as we won’t rely on highlighting parts rather
than    reading   and discussing   more with   students   into
