Delightful To Read, Great Way To Approach A Biography March 20 2015
By Marisa Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My 7-year old and I really enjoyed this comic. The tone/script captures (my idea of) Mother Teresa perfectly, and teaches about the history of her life and the influence she wrought worldwide. The manga style is silly at times and kept my little one laughing. It was a little distracting for me but I don't think it hurts the value of this book as a teaching tool at all; in fact it enhances it. I think my child will retain the information much better than a drier biography full of photographs. I did feel the need to show her pictures of Mother Teresa afterward, however, so she could recognize her real-life image! The only thing I would suggest to improve upon the book is a photograph of the subject at the end (or a more realistic-looking drawing). I wish I could find the other books in this series!
