Young kids today may not know who Mother Teresa of Calcutta is. But when I was still young, her remarkable and unselfish dedication to helping the poor is immensely known. I was in grade school when her demise happened and I remember how her death was mourned all over the world, yet her life story was also celebrated because she set as an inspiration to everyone to help to those are in dire situations. I admit that I never knew who Mother Teresa is before she became a nun and this little book was a huge help for me to better understand her devotion to reach out to the poorest of the poor. Her compassion and generosity traits are a great example to teach to young kids because these will be instilled in their mind, that they will carry till they grew up. |

Another great mini biography from the "Little People, Big Dreams" series. Growing up as a kid I heard a lot about Mother Teresa and her legacy yet I didn't know much about her life. This tiny book, by all means, is not sufficient to list everything Mother Teresa did as a philanthropist but it is condense enough to show what a great humanitarian she was. It's never too early to educate young children about love and giving. Mother Teresa's legacy should not be forgotten for she was one of the most influential figures in the recent history. The book is adorned with beautiful illustrations. Short and simple text that helps to retain children's attention. "Mother Teresa" makes a wonderful addition to the "Little People, Big Dreams" series. A must read!

New in the Little People, Big Dreams series, discover the incredible life of Mother Teresa. The text and illustrations show Agnes as a child brought up in the Roman Catholic faith in Macedonia. Her parents helped others and invited them into their home. When Agnes as 12 she had a calling, but her mother made her wait until she was 18 to become a nun. She changed her name and became Sister Teresa. She always wanted to go to India to help the people and that is where she ended up, as a celebrated heroine to the poor and sick on the streets of Calcutta. The author, Isabel Sanchez Vegara’s makes the point that everything she did and all the accolades she received were all done in the name of the poor. This is a child friendly biography that shows a young woman striving to achieve her dream of helping others and that whatever you do, you do it in the name of love. The back of the book has a brief timeline that is for older readers. This book could be used to teach young children how to write a biography, show that it big or small, you can still make a difference in the lives of others. A good book for a school library. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book to read via netgalley. The rating, opinions and ideas stated are my own. 4.5 stars rounded up to 5 stars.

This series is a must-have. In the "Little People, BIG DREAMS" series the newest book is all about Mother Theresa. Kids will discover her incredible humble life as she stoops down to serve and to reach out to the poorest of the poor in Calcutta, India. She is born with the name Agnes in Skopje, Macedonia. As a young child she knows in her heart that she is called by God to dedicate herself to care for the poor, the sick and the forgotten all around the world. Mother Theresa becomes a nun, teaches children in India and is a catalyst to open up hospitals and orphanages to help the oppressed and suffering all around her. This selfless, giant-hearted woman gives her whole life to care for those less fortunate than her, those that have no money or voice to survive on their own. She is recognized worldwide for her dedication, compassion and deep love for those that suffer alone. "She received all the awards that could be given to a single person." "In 1979 she received the Nobel Peace Prize for her humanitarian work. She died in September 1997 and was beatified in October 2003. In December 2015, Pope Francis recognized a second miracle attributed to Mother Teresa, clearing the way for her to be canonized on September 4, 2016." This educational book is inspiring to both the young and old. The illustrations are very kid-friendly and bring her biography to life. The colour pallet is bold and vibrant. Mother Theresa is a positive role model, an unyielding force for good. This wonderful book sends a powerful message, through her, that ordinary people can impact and change their world for the better. I highly, highly recommend this book and the whole series.
