Mother TeresaBook - 2006
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.
