“Mother Teresa made the world a better place. She did the work that no one else wanted to do. She helped poor people.”
This wonderfully rich, detailed biography of Mother Teresa was written to engage and inspire, as well as inform. When children read about the life of a distinguished historical figure, they begin to see that famous people also were children, had families, learned, and worked toward a goal. Discovering connections between themselves and a person who has made a significant contribution to the world is an insightful moment for young readers. Includes rich historical photos, simple text, and a pictorial “Words to Know” page. Paperback, 32 pages. Ages 5-8.
