Mother Teresa: A Life of Love

Quick Overview

Learn how little Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu grew up to be Mother Teresa of Calcutta by following God from eastern Europe to the faraway country of India. This whimsical, full-color picture book tells the story of how Mother Teresa grew up going to daily Mass and helping the poor alongside her mother and sister. Then learn how God gave her the courage to leave her home and travel to India, and then to start her own religious order.

Young children will see how we can all grow up to be holy people by following God’s will. Parents will love the suggestions for how to continue the faith conversation at home. For children in prekindergarten through second grade.

What a darling book! Mother Teresa: A Life of Love is certainly one to add to a child’s library. Mother Teresa’s story of growing up and her work as an adult is told simply and directly, and the full-color illustrations draw children into the book. While reading the book with children, you can easily bring about a conversation with each page. This book piques the interest of older children, too, and is a springboard to reading more about Mother Teresa. As a classroom teacher, I'm adding it to my faith library for my third-grade students. —Barb Gilman, third-grade teacher, St. Margaret Mary School, Omaha, NE, and 2014 NCEA Distinguished Teacher

We were charmed by Mother Teresa: A Life of Love, and are using it as the lesson text for “Do Small Things with Great Love: St. Teresa of Calcutta,” a lesson plan for kindergarten through second grade. The book helps students explore the life of St. Teresa, her work among the poorest of the poor, her founding of the Missionaries of Charity, and her love for God and neighbor. We can easily use St. Teresa’s life and beauty to teach children to respect human beings from the first moment of creation forward. —Laura Kizior, Content Developer, Culture of Life Studies Program, American Life League
