Mother Teresa Reviews

  • 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 them. Every book has a wonderful story, a positive message and adorable artwork. Different books in the series have different artists and that is really cool. The illustrations in this book were super cute and I especially loved how colourful they were.

    I would definitely recommend these books and I can’t wait to read more of the series.

    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 later Saint Teresa of Calcutta.

    It’s wonderfully colourful illustrations give so much interest to young eyes, with so much to look at on every page. Lovely vibrant nature scenes and indoor scenes, which all have lots of animals and rosy-cheeked cherub-like characters. Natascha Rosenberg’s enchanting illustrations are tasteful and modern. These are incredible books, not only lovely to look at but also beautifully written with inspiring stories.

    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

    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 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 good book!

  • Emma

    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 gorgeous.

  • Laura

    As always, this series of Little People, Big Dreams has chosen a very good woman to profile, Mother Teresa.

    Simple narrative, good introduction. Easy to follow storyline. Bright pictures.

    Thanks to Netgalley for making this book available for an honest review.

    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.

    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 for Him through the poor. I recognize it's a non-rel

    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 for Him through the poor. I recognize it's a non-religious book, but that was her purpose. I also might have chose a serif font (so so picky, I know. That doesn't play a role in my rating.) so that early readers could start identifying the letters and sight words used in the text.

    The book did a fine job of showing her loving nature. I am not sure how to do this with a children's book, but this woman was also an extremely strong woman. The meekness of her definitely comes across, but I'm not sure the strength is obvious and that's one of the important balances of being a saint.
