One thought on “Listen to the Wind: The Story of Dr. Greg & Three Cups of Tea

  1. I originally read Greg Mortenson s Listen to the Wind as a library book a goodly number of years ago probably in 2010 or so , and while I truly do very much appreciate and even enjoy the majority of the author s presented narrative, I really cannot say that Susan L Roth s accompanying collage like fabric based and inspired illustrations are all that much to my personal tastes rather unclearly defined at best, often rendering the human figures into almost shapeless, featureless, emotionless entit [...]


  2. This is the picture book version of the story based on the true adventure of Dr Greg Mortenson, who was injured on a mountain in Pakistan, and who was helped to recover by the people of a poor village in the mountains When he was well enough to leave, he asked how he could repay the people, and was told to listen to the wind to find his answer He did, and he was inspired to go back to the village and build a school He has built many schools now all over Pakistan for children who live in villages [...]


  3. Disappointing The folks who put together this book missed a real opportunity Bleh storytelling The writing does nothing to convey to kids the conditions under which Korphe children tried to go to school, or the isolation in which they lived The amount of effort the entire community put in to make the school happen does not come through They also completely left out the efforts of American schoolchildren to raise funds for this and other Pakistan school projects, and contact information for Penni [...]


  4. To be fair I found it memorable for the art not that I don t think the story is amazing But this is one of the COOLEST examples of collage I ve ever seen Loved it Hope the art will attract kids and they will learn something about caring for others as they read it.


  5. The adult version of this book Three Cups of Tea One Man s Mission to Promote Peace One School at a Time is on the book lists of many a friend Eventually I will get to this book, but recently I found this in the children s room of the library we usually visit On a whim, I checked it to get a glimpse of this popular story I know this is the ultra watered down version but for now it made for a quick read that captivated all three of my children The artwork is also very cool The illustrator took s [...]


  6. Picturebook based on the Story of Greg Mortenson s school building project in Pakistan While this book tells the essential story of the task of getting a school built in the mountain village of Korphe, it does not convey the personal struggle and commitment of Dr Greg The book doesn t convey to American children the significance and life changing effect a school and a teacher would have on the village and its children The illustrator chose collage art to illustrate the story as an imitation of t [...]


  7. a wonderful adaptation of Three cups of Tea for children to understand I think no American child will understand the amazing gift of education that is so readily available in our country, at least my kids don t get it yet, and the obstacles that everyone had to overcome It is hard to put your mind around poverty and stifling religious rule like these children deal with everyday, but it was so beautiful to see it all come together The mosaics are Stunning in this book and I LOVE the scrapbook at [...]


  8. Absolutely love the collage style of illustration It makes for beautiful pictures and works well with the story especially with the extra tidbits given at the end of the book that talk about the culture of the village of Korphe, Pakistan It is a true story based on Dr Greg Mortenson and Three Cups of Tea where he builds schools in rural war torn countries I want to rate it higher because of the art, but the story itself lacks something in the writing, it s not as compelling as I would like Prob [...]


  9. Okay, this book is beautiful The illustrations are compelling, colorful, creative made of absolutely stunning collages of fabric and other materials, photographed and set And the story I read it to my preschoolers, fighting back tears as I read both times they asked me to read it And then we talked about what it would be like to really build your own school from the ground up I think it deserves a couple readings with them to see what we can do about having it grab their imaginations a little [...]

  15. Over the summer the school where I teach took on a One Book, One School reading project All children, family, faculty, and staff were asked to read the ability appropriate version of Greg Mortenson s bookThree Cups of Tea Listen to the Wind is the version my kindergarten students read It is not the most compelling storytelling I ve ever read, but my students responded very positively to the book The language was age appropriate so they could understand what was happening, and the illustrations a [...]

  17. This is the picture book version of the author s Three Cups of Tea I must read that book now, because the picture book left me with questions How did he come to be in Pakistan in the first place How did he get the materials together And I want to know about the librarian I d give the picture book 5 stars except that I found Susan Roth s illustrations to be unclear in spots, so that I couldn t tell what was going on The photos at the end helped This was an inspiring story that I enjoyed very muc [...]


  18. After reading Three cups of Tea and feeling inspired, I got this from the library to read to my kids My 6 year old wasn t that interested in it, and he usually loves books I read to him However, I still think it is a story that inspires and I m glad it s in children s form.


  19. 3 and a half stars This is an excellent introduction for students running a Pennies for Peace program I am so glad they created this book, which just came out on January 22, 2009 It is appropriate for all children as an intro, and the photos with captions at the end are very helpful The illustrations throughout are truly breathtaking The kids loved it, too.


  20. Mia read the first page, and I read her the rest Mia had a lot to say about the book, and was able to connect the story to the Peace Project her Girlscout troop has been involved in for a few years We talked about what it must be like to study outside, writing your lessons in the mud, without books We will look at the Pennies for Peace website together tonight.


  21. I d like to have liked the book than I did I m looking forward to sharing it with children to see if they appreciate the collage illustrations better than I have at this point and also to see what they understand of the story I loved reading Three Cups of Tea and admire Greg Mortenson, but for whatever reason this just doesn t click.


  22. I read this book to my god son since I love the adult version The artwork in the book was beautiful I wish that the photos were dispersed through out the book instead of at the end Also, I think the book was a little too deep and gladly unrealistic to my six year old god son He acted like he had ants in his pants and couldn t wait for the book to be over.


  23. As a Greg Mortenson fan and a librarian, I was thrilled to add this picture book to my collection I was already sold on Mortenson s inspiring story and am so pleased to make it accessible to my younger readers The paper cut illustrations are incredible This is my favorite book of the year.
