Easier to read than the original by Greg Mortenson

The addition of Greg Mortenson's daughter makes this book sing. Young adults and any reader will also enjoy the interview with Jane Goodall, who has made so many contributions to society. Ms Goodall is a name readers will recognize and feel comfortable reading. I have recommended this book to so many adults and young adult librarians because I feel the essence of Greg Mortenson's endeavors to build schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan is best explained in this young adult version. We will discuss both books at my Book Club soon.
Every young reader from age 10-18 should read this book. I recommend it as a title for gifts for the young and old alike on your gift list!
Sarah Thomson was exceptional at adapting this book.

The book three Cups of Tea is a great book. It tells the story of Greg Mortenson and what one wrong turn on his K2 journey did to his life. He ended up in the city of Korphe where he then realized how many towns do not have schools and the children there don't receive education. The rest of the book continues on about how Greg and the CAI build schools and bring hope to the children of Central Asia.
I would recommend this book to people of all ages. It tells a story and makes people realize in a more literal sense what it is like over there. We don't have to worry everyday if we will have food to eat and water to drink. We are required to go to school and they are lucky to go to school. This book does a terrific job of portraying the message, "Education means hope."

    Awesome book!

    I loved this book because I was astonished that an American would help Afganistanis and Pakistanis during America's war with Afghanistan.
