Synopsis

Mother Teresa by Iris Howden, Sandra Woodcock

Stimulating and accessible, the titles in the LIVEWIRE series have been produced in association with The Basic Skills Agency to ensure a non-patronising approach towards the requirements of readers with special needs. They provide teenagers/adult interest level fiction and non-fiction for those with reading ages below 10, or adult students learning English as a second language. Each book is graded at one of the following reading ages: 6-7, 7-8, 8-9 or 9-10. All LIVEWIRE books are written by qualified Special Needs teachers, and are expertly assessed and subtly colour-coded for the appropriate reading age. The books in the LIVEWIRE REAL LIVES strand contain fascinating stories of popular music stars, famous historical figures, Hollywood actors, TV personalities and top sports people. Read the story of MOTHER TERESA in this revealing account of the woman known as, 'The Saint of the Gutters'.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
