Interesting to a child ? ? ?
on September 17, 2010
I'm a avid supporter of Greg Mortenson's efforts in Pakistan and Afghanistan, and have read with real interest his Three Cups of Tea, and the even more gripping Stones into Schools, so I was eager to read a "child's book" based on the efforts to build schools there and get education to all the children, particularly girls.
The pictures in Listen to the Wind are charming. Are they intelligible to a young child? No. The story is familiar. But is it told in language a child can understand? I think not. My eight year old grandchild was totally disinterested. I'll be donating the book to my local library.
