Reviews - What do customers think about Blessed Teresa of Calcutta: Missionary of Charity (Encounter the Saints Series, 17)?
A Great Book for Kids Ages 9-11 Aug 14, 2009
I bought this book last year to use in a religion class with 5th graders. Several kids read it, and enjoyed it. It is not an "easy book", but at the same time it is not "a difficult book." In other words, it makes great reading because the style is clear, and uses vocabulary appropriate to the age level mentioned in the review title.
Highly recommend. A great introduction for children whom, even today, do not know anything about this special woman! Surprising, since it wasn't that long ago. A great woman of faith, forgotten already?
If you're a teacher, or simply a parent who is searching for a good role model, buy this book. Show your children what being a hero really means!

Best Book Ever Nov 19, 2008
I loved this book so much that I keep reading and rereading it. It's very detailed. It's like being with Mother Teresa through every step of her journey. I was completely taken back by the poverty and poor in all of the places Mother Teresa went. I would highly recommend this book!
