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
