This is a great book that tells you all about rodents. You can learn about their special front teeth, where they live, and what they eat. Some even store food in their stretchy cheeks. The pictures are great too. There is no telling what you might learn from reading this great book. I even learned that I was related to a rodent. I read this book with my Mimi, she is a Beaver. So check out a book, there is no telling what you might learn.

Three Cups of Tea
By Greg Mortenson
Submitted by: Ean
A man named Greg Mortenson was climbing K2, the second largest mountain in the world. He became stranded during a blizzard. The very friendly Korphe clan in Pakistan saved him from hypothermia and frostbite. This clan had had no school for over six hundred years. The people could not even pay the children’s teachers the dollar per diem salary. Mortenson wanted to build a school for them, so he started a program called Pennies for Pakistan, a non-profit organization that he created for the Korphe tribe to build the schools they so desperately needed. He went on to fund the construction of over 78 schools for remote tribes all throughout Asia. His heroic, valiant efforts are documented in the book Three Cups of Tea. Read how one simple act of kindness has touched so many lives so far away.
