This is a great early biography to introduce children to Helen Keller. The chapters are just the right length and illustrations are great, especially the signs. Biographies are great way to learn about the difficulties of other people and how they overcame them. This one is no exception.
I’ve always found Helen Keller’s story to be inspiring, so I’m thrilled that her story’s being retold for young readers to enjoy too. I also learned a couple new things in this book. I didn’t know that Helen Keller enjoyed going to concerts to FEEL the music or that she liked working in the garden. She must’ve had the best sense of touch and smell!
Wow! My kids and I just loved this book. I love that my son could read it himself. We especially loved the pages that showed how to make the letters in sign language and the pages that showed what braille lettering looks like. We are now all wanting to learn sign language!
Beautifully filled with details, while still remaining “readable” to emerging readers. A lovely story of strength and determination, with an underlying lesson of thankfulness.
This is an awesome, age appropriate description of Helen Keller’s life. My kids are fascinated with her story and I’m excited that my younger kids have an accessible way to read about her amazing life, all on their own!
Close your eyes and pretend you cannot see or hear anything. You cannot tell your family what you want or need. You might cry and yell just like Helen Keller did! Now think about having a teacher come into your life who will never give up on you. That’s what Annie Sullivan did for Helen. Learn about the story of Helen Keller as she goes from a young child who is mad because she can’t see, hear, or talk to her loved ones to a smart and capable young woman who can speak, read Braille, and even write books!
