Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-3-- As he did in his other picture-book biographies, Adler concentrates here on the childhood of his subject. There is enough information given for readers to understand Keller's frustration and to see the enormous help that Sullivan gave her. Details of the mean things she did to her mother and friends before meeting Sullivan clarify this even further. The way in which Keller learned that objects had names is included; the book then shifts to her college years and touches on highlights of her life including visiting soldiers, writing, and lecturing. Although coverage is too brief for any kind of report, it is interesting enough to awaken children's interest in learning more about Keller. The Wallners' line and watercolor cartoons match the simple text and are appropriate to the book's tone. --Margaret C. Howell, West Springfield Elementary School, VA

An early reader biography for elementary age students K-3. David Adler did a nice job of describing the challenges and frustrations that young Helen Keller went through and the hope Anne Sullivan, her teacher, brought into her life. Keller was such an amazing woman who inspired so many disabled people to realize their life can have meaning and quality. Her story will continue to be inspirational to many, even those who have much smaller hurdles to overcome in life.

My daughter heard about Helen Keller at preschool and wanted to learn more. This book was a great starting point and has become one of her favorites and a great jumping off point for discussing more of Helen Keller's life and work. Highly recommended.

I had to read this book for a class at college for my education major. It tells the story of Helen Keller simply and accurately, with very nice illistrations. It is a good book for young children to begin learning about who she was. I'm sure there are better books out there, but this is pretty good to begin with.

I think this book is TERRIFIC! It told the story very, very well. I loved reading it to my 7-year-old daughter. When we were through, she exclaimed, "Read it again!" I highly recommend it!

I have read a story to my granddaughter about Helen Keller. She has been wanting to learn more about Helen and this book has language that a six year old understands. The pictures also helped her learn about the time Helen was a child.

I like the picture book. It's Helen Keller. Helen Keller was born in Tuscumbia Alabama. A girl would like this book if they bought it. 6 years old, 6 1/2. I thought I was back in Helen Keller's year. -- Written by Meg, age 5 1/2
