  • This book does a nice job of providing both facts and some insight into her personality There s about a paragraph of text on each page I read this with kids ranging 4 11 in age They were all interested, but the younger ones were quite intrigued There have been many discussions about braille and would you rather lose your sight or your hearing and what are our senses etc since the book, not to mention many requests to reread it.


  • This is an amazing story about Helen Keller The book tells about the life of Helen from when she was an infant to her death The book is very informal and great I didn t know so much about her The book is for 3rd through 8th grade This book is an easy read I would use it for and student that is in a higher grade level and is not up to speed with reading skills I would read this to all ages though.


  • A wonderful introduction to the life, struggles, and triumphs of Helen Keller Written in a clean, easy to grasp style, this is a great book to pick up at the library and read to your kids Every child should know the name of Helen Keller.I was less pleased with the art, especially the depiction of the people throughout the book The colors seem over saturated and I found myself drawn to the text than to the paintings


  • This book was easy to read It focused on the life of Helen Keller as a child until death It could be a useful tool for children to see that even seemingly big set backs can be overcome with determination A version of a trust game could be used to let the children experience what life could have been like for Helen Keller One child can lead another child that has their eyes closed or blind folded to help the children understand some things that Heller Keller had to overcome.


  • I enjoyed the biography on Hellen Keller Hellen Keller was an inspirational leader She couldn t see or hear Yet she was able to read and speak eventually This is a good book for young readers Their are many picutes and sentences are easy The book is broken up into chapters just to designate that her life was moving forward.


  • This is a real story of success of Helen Keller, who was blind and deaf from an illness At the very beginning of her illness, she really struggled to do everything, but after her family found a teacher for her, she became a learner Even if she had never spoken of seen the people, she learned to communicate with the people.


  • This book is a book about Helen Keller and her life of struggle overcoming her disabilities I would use this book for female historical figures as well as diversity Students will learn that diversity does not only come in skin color and ethnicity but also in people s ability.


  • This is a real explicit book to be a picture book You really can learn all that you need to learn about Helen Keller in this book I could see the love of the teacher through the illustrations This book would be good for elementary of middle schoolers.


  • This book could be used in any classroom The message of overcoming, and the knowledge of the blind and deaf that is given is great.



  • This book has very well written and has some great facts The inside flap has a small blurb on Helen The pictures are very bright and colorful Has great facts Very well written.
