Stepping Stones: A chapter book
  jhawn | Jul 31, 2017 |
A new teacher boards with Hannah's family. The family has always assumed that Hannah cannot learn or do things like other children because she is blind. This is a short book that is a nice transition from the picture intensive "I Can Read" chapter books. As far as the quality of the book, it is a well written, simple story. It is not exceptional or likely to remain in print for more than a generation of readers.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 067982698X, Paperback)

Nine-year-old Hannah would do almost anything to go to school with all the other children in town. But Hannah is blind and her parents keep her at home where she is "safe." Then Lydia Robbin comes to town. She's a strong-willed teacher who accomplishes a small miracle: she convinces Hannah's parents to send her to school. At first Hannah is overjoyed. But she soon learns that there are many obstacles--and people-- that stand in the way of her education. Hannah will need tremendous courage to prove to her classmates, her parents and herself that Miss Robbin was right to believe in her.
