Mother Teresa's alms bowl

“The mixture of narration and factual information is motivating and enables the audience to emotionally connect with this person who impacted history. It also provides historical background and cultural information. This book might easily lead the reader to explore further information on this famous individual or to read other books in this genre. Highly Recommended.” —CM Magazine, 01/09 "These brief, accessible entries feature lively layouts, short chapters, and fictitious characters who pose questions and share information about the historical figures who are the focus of the works...These informative works will entertain without overwhelming." —School Library Journal, 07-08 "...These books will be of great interest to readers in the elementary grades and would be a great addition to social studies programs. The format is a great way to present biographical and historical information and could certainly be used by students in assignments that might include that kind of information." —Resource Links, 06/08
