Mother Teresa is specifically written to meet the needs of adolescents and adults who are reluctant readers. The photographs, maps, and illustrations reflect the text, making the words easy to decode. This high-interest, low-vocabulary biography is ideal for English as a Second Language or adult basic education students.

Mother Teresa (1910-1997) spent her life working with the poorest of the poor. In 1948, she left her convent and started a school in the slums. By 1950, Mother Teresa received permission to start her own order, "The Missionaries of Charity." This charity, which has opened homes all over the world, serves the poorest of the poor.

I applaud anyone who gives so much of their life helping the poor... by please consider "The Missionary Position" by Christopher Hitchens.... Mother Teresa "was not a friend of the poor. She was a friend of poverty. She said that suffering was a gift from God. She spent her life opposing the only known cure for poverty, which is the empowerment of women and the emancipation of them from a livestock version of compulsory reproduction"

A great way to get the basic information on famous people - enabled me to get a quick overview, from which I decided to look for the biography of this wonderful woman.
