Reviews Mother Teresa

  • Kristy K
    I love this series. It is so great at introducing historic figures into children’s lives (and let’s face it, adult’s lives too). Of course I knew of Mother Teresa but I didn’t know much outside of her good works. This book enlightened me with both the illustrations and the text (simple enough for children, informative enough for everyone to learn something).

    “It doesn’t matter if you do big or small things in your life, as long as you do them with great love.” Another great edition in the Little People, Big Dreams series. This focuses on Mother Teresa and her incredible life. The story is simple but good and there’s also a little section at the end with pictures and more facts about Mother Teresa. This entire series is amazing and if I had kids, I would definitely buy the entire series for th...

    Mother Teresa is another lovely addition to the quite lovely 'Little People, Big Dreams' series. Natascha Rosenberg's illustrations are splendid; they are so sweet and fun, and filled with colour. I knew barely anything about Mother Teresa before beginning this, and really like the central message, that kindness is the greatest gift one can give.

    The ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This series is always a joy to read, it’s a really nice introduction to well known women for little children. Of course the plot is always a little bit fast but that’s to be expected and it’s totally understandable. I know Mother Teresa's story and I think it was summed up pretty well in this lovely little book. The illustrations were just gor...
  • Myndi
    Little People, Big Dreams is a series of nonfiction children’s books focused on famous women, past and present. Mother Teresa is the second I’ve read in this series and it is beautiful! As was the case in Jane Austen edition, the illustrations are beyond charming and the information is pitch perfect for young children. It is essentially a quick biography, explaining how a child named Agnes, born in Macedonia, came to be Mother Teresa, a nun w...

    This is a book that's part of some kind of little collection from this author who presented in a simple way, kind of short biography for kids, great woman in various «field of activity». This one is about Mother Theresa and the illustration were not that good, but the woman is such an important person of our modern era and I think lot of kids today don't know anything about her, so this book is a good way to show them who she was! Simple, but g...

    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 peopl...
  • Elizabeth
    What an adorable book to introduce kiddos to the life of service that was Saint Mother Teresa's! The illustrations in the book are colorful and I could see how they would maintain the attention of the child listening. The story is directly told (trying to tell her entire life story in read-aloud form must have been tough) and weaves some phrases from her most famous quotes ("do them with great love"). The book doesn't mention Jesus or her love fo...
  • Daniella Traill
    The Little People, Big Dreams series is such an excellent idea, bringing significant people from history to life for young readers in such wonderful illustrations.This book begins with Mother Teresa as a young girl, when she was still called Agnes and part of a family. Little Agnes is caring and kind, and it shows her love of God and her family as a young child and how her kindness stayed with her into adulthood with her becoming and nun and late...

  • Ruksana
    I'm so happy that Little People Big Dreams have included Mother Teresa in their series of influential women, who changed the world. She was an inspirational figure whilst growing up, in a gentle way. Her life and work still create awe and I'm so happy that children can still draw inspiration from her teachings. The take away message in this book and indeed in her life was that no act is small when done with great love. Loved the book and look for...

    I am so glad this book series exists. The illustrations are gorgeous and they are such an easy and fun way to get very young children interested in history early on while inspiring them with stories of little people who have changed the world in their own ways.

    Mother Teresa was a courageous woman. She set out to become a nun and then she she set out to help the poor people who needed help most. This Little People book shows her astonishing life in wonderful pictures and short paragraphs.

    Open Book Reviews by Megan Schmelzerwww.openbookreviews.orgWhile wandering around Barnes and Noble, I stumbled across this awesome new board book series for babies and toddlers.

To be totally honest, I was so intrigued by these books that I ended up sitting right down in...

    Another book in the “Little People Big Dreams” series.I wonder if most people ever thought of Mother Teresa as anything but a religious and social figure. Who was she before that? This little book for little kids provides some answers.For one, she was from Macedonia, though I don’t know if back then it was one independent country or part of Greece and others. When a new priest came to town, who’d worked in India, it inspired her to become...

    This series about inspirational women, aimed at four to seven year olds is an absolute delight. This volume is about Mother Teresa, chronicling her life from a loving, devout child names Agnes to that of a missionary nun in Calcutta who posthumously came to be known as Saint Teresa of Calcutta. It is beautifully told and illustrated and its message is the wonderfully heartwarming ‘it doesn’t matter if you do big or small things in your life, ...

    Genre: Nonfiction (biography)Date: 11-19Grade level: 2-4This book highlights Mother Teresa's early life and her works throughout her life after becoming a nun. The illustrations are adorable and make it seem like you are not reading a biography, but more of a picture book. I enjoyed reading this immensely and was captivated by the pictures which were beautiful and brought her and her work to life.
  • Erin B
    Biography; grades k-3This was such a cute book! It’s a biography, but as I was reading, it didn’t feel like one. The writing and illustrations are great- definitely will keep students engaged. I hope I am able to have this book series in my classroom.
  • Amanda
