Listen to the Wind

Mortenson, G. and Roth, S. L. Listen to the Wind: The story of Dr. Gred and Three Cups of Tea. The Penguin Group: Dial Books for Young Readers. ISBN: 978-0-8037-3058-8.

In this beautifully illustrated and touchingly written book, Mortenson and Roth make the story of the New York Times Best Seller, Three Cups of Tea, accessible to young readers. Simply told and marvelously illustrated through collage, this book offers a picture of hope, of determination, and of how individuals can change our world for the better. A true account, this story gives perspective to readers and brings our ever shrinking world even closer in a highly relatable way. Notes about how individuals can make a difference and photographs of individuals impacting the children of Korphe leave the reader hopeful and inspired.
