TEHRAN June 30 (MNA) -- Since the Persian-language book “Meet My Friends” was so warmly welcomed by Afghani children in recent months, it was republished by its Iranian publisher based on an order received from the Asia/Pacific Cultural Center for UNESCO (ACCU).

The book had been printed and distributed among Afghan children by the Institute for Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults last year.


ACCU is a non-profit organization working for mutual understanding and cultural cooperation in Asia and the Pacific, in the fields of culture, book development, and literacy-non-formal education promotion.


This time the book has been published in 30,000 copies, twice as many as last time.


The book has been translated into Dari (the Persian language spoken in Afghanistan) by Taqi Vahedi.


The book features writings by children from different countries with titles like “Our Houses,” “Our Prays,” “Our Foods,” “Our Friends Take a Trip,” “From This Shop to Another,” “Let’s Play Together.”


“Meet My Friends” also contains several articles by Iranian children.
