Greg Mortenson stumbled, lost and delirious, into a remote Himalayan village after a failed climb up K2. The villagers saved his life. I bought this book for my grandsons so they could know the story of Three Cups of Tea which had so inspired me. I am so glad I did. The book opened up a wonderful and continuing discussion about children who live in other parts of the world and how their lives differ from ours. The story engaged them, and the beautiful artwork - which has a lovely back story of its own - intrigued them, more so with each reading.

This is a Book Review written by one of my wonderful students as a class assignment. Her name is Naeisha and this is what she wrote:

I read "Listen to the Wind". This book was about all the kids that are in school in india they teach about Indian school. They make aLot of food and aLot of stuff.
I read "Listen to the Wind" and I did not like it very much. The book is about students learning about India. They learn about the things that they make, and the food they eat in India. I did not like how the student is eat so much junk food or how cold their town is. It sound's like their townand lives might be dangerous.
this part taht i like about this book is the families thatgrow and gather and the food that people eat.I like the end of the story, because it has aLot of good food from India.
But, I really wish that the story were more fun. Maybe they could have talked more about the food. A party would have been awesome. So, if you're looking for a fun book, then this one is not for you.

My 4 and 5 year old loved this book! I did too. I am always looking for books to broaden their little Texan horizons, and this one was a treasure.

I read this to my daughter's kindergarten class and thought it was a great book for them. We looked up Baltistan (sp?) on the globe and imagined what it would be like to go to school outside and draw letters and numbers in the dirt with sticks. Plus the collage illustrations are wonderful.

"Three Cups of Tea" was the inspirational story of how one man, Greg Mortenson made a difference in the lives of children in the mountainous region of Central Asia, through his foundation the Central Asia Institute and also Pennies for Peace. The book focused on the fundraising initiatives and how Greg and his team were eventually able to build dozens of schools in the region.

I was delighted when I found out that there was children's version of this book, i.e. a picture book that I could share with my 4 year-old daughter. In 'Listen to the Wind", illustrator Susan Roth uses collages [made using fabric, cut paper and other items] to help Greg tell his story in a manner that will be accessible to younger children. The collages are simply beautiful and will inspire readers to try their own collage projects at home [my daughter and I were]. For those young readers who are curious about the actual place and people in the story, there is a scrapbook in the book that contains photographs of Korphe and its' people.

This is essential for all school and public libraries. The story is inspiring and teaches about charity - in "Listen to the Wind", younger children will be able to share in this true-life hope-filled story of one man's courage and determination to make a difference, and of the hope given to the people in Central Asia.

The subhead is "The story of Dr. Greg and Three Cups of Tea," and so it is. This is a child's picture book that tells the inspirational true story of Greg Mortenson and his tireless efforts to build schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Mortenson's book about the experience, Three Cups of Tea, is a worldwide bestseller. Since the topic is about kids, this picture book and the newly published Three Cups of Tea: The Young Reader's Edition, should resonate with children.

In 1993, Mortenson got lost in the mountains of Pakistan after turning back from a failed attempt at climbing K2. He stumbled into Korphe, a poor village, where the townspeople nursed him back to health. As he was recuperating, Mortenson was shocked to learn the village's children had no school, with lessons taught outside just three days a week. Kids learned to write using sticks in the dirt. To repay the village's kindness, the Montana native promised to return, and help build a school.

Mortenson did come back to Korphe, and has indeed helped build not just one but fifty-five schools -- many for girls -- in the impoverished region.

The idea of "three cups of tea" comes from the village chief, Haji Ali. "With the first cup of tea you are a stranger, with the second you become a friend, and with the third, you join our family."

Even if I wasn't drawn in by the story, I'd be tempted to buy Listen to the Wind just for the artwork. Artist Susan L. Roth used a variety of materials to create the colorful collages on each page. An artist's note in the back explains that Roth was inspired by actual artifacts from the region, in which nothing ever goes to waste. A woman's hat was "like a sculpture of cloth fragments, bright colored yarn and metal accents," including an actual computer chip.

Also in the back are photo-filled scrapbook pages, showing the completed school and Korphe villagers.

A story like this should help kids feel closer to children in other parts of the world, as if they had actually shared that third cup of tea.

The true story of Greg Mortenson and the school he built in Korphe is told in simple language and illustrated with textile/paper collage.
At the end of the book there is a scrapbook of captioned photographs .Following that, there is an artist's note from talented Illustrator, Susan L. Roth.

A very inspirational story
