After reading "Three Cups of Tea" I was inspired to read other books about Pakistan and Afghanistan. This book was very interesting.

5 stars! We LOVE this book about Pizza Pat with its surprise ending! The words roll off your tongue in rhymes and song and we look forward to getting more of Rita Golden Gelman's childrens' books.

And her "Tales of a Female Nomad" is one of my personal all-time faves!


Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Mission to Promote Peace . . . One School at a Time
Review Date: 10/19/2011


Great story! Dr. Greg never made it up the mountain he was attempting to climb and was nursed back to health by the people who found him in an isolated mountain village in Pakistan. He was forever grateful and vowed to return. He returned again and again and ended up helping his friends build a school for the children of that remote village. His work also took him to other parts of Pakistan and Afghanistan where he helped build schools and encourage girls to get a formal education. I learned a lot about the cultures and people of that region, which was so interesting. After this book I read several other books about that part of the world.
