Nestled amongst the Santa Monica Mountains, Agoura Hills is considered the western gateway to Los Angeles County. Originally inhabited by the Chumash Indians, the area was a well-known stagecoach stop for early settlers heading west thanks to its accessibility to well water. In 1927, Paramount Pictures purchased a ranch and started making movies; hence, the town became known as Picture City, having drawn the likes of silent film star Laura LaPlante (for whom a street was named), Gary Cooper, Clark Gable, and Claudette Colbert. The town was renamed by the Post Office to Agoura Hills after French settler Pierre Agoure. In 1982, the residents voted to officially incorporate the 7.9-square-mile region, making Agoura Hills Los Angeles County's 82nd city. Today, Agoura Hills is a flourishing, family-friendly community known for its award-winning schools, lush and beautiful parks, biking and hiking trails, and burgeoning businesses. The area has become one of the most desirable places to live in Los Angeles, yet the population remains relatively low at approximately 20,000 residents.
To the children of Afghanistan. May their harts forever be filled with song. "This wonderful songbook is a small treasure that connect today's Afghan children with generations past. My own children have already memorised these songs, as I had when I was a child. With all the destruction that Afghan children have witnessed, it is my hope that this collection brings a sense of joy, belonging and identity." - Khaled Hosseini, Author of The kite Runner & A Thousand Splendid Suns "When I listen to songs, it brings back the wonderful memories of my peaceful and happy childhood in Kabul. Some of those beautiful memories are gone forever, others are being gradually restored. This songbook contains some of the jewels of our vibrant culture and gives back to the children a part of their rich heritage. It would be devastating to lose these songs, an important part of our folklore. I am so grateful for the opportunity to take small part in the re-creation of these lost treasures." - Shamim Jawad, Founder of Ayenda Foundation: The Afghan Children Initiative. "If there is a world here in 2108, children will save us. hooray for this book." - Pete Seeger "I'm happy that Afghanistan's children are fortunate to have this positive light that they have been deprived of for decades. This songbook hands back a part of their culture and childhood that will hopefully grow for generations to come. As an Afghan-American, I am thankful that this songbook was created." - Halima Karzai
