This book begins with the early life of Helen Keller and how she became sick and could no longer see or hear at an early age. A teacher named Ann Sullivan helped Helen to learn by using her hands to make sign language. She went on learning and was excited to learn all that she can. She became famous and was lecturing with the help of Ann all over the country.

Personal Reaction
I love the story of Helen Keller! I love how she was spunky and continued to learn even through her difficulties. She is inspiring and vey motivational!

Classroom Extension
1. I would have the children learn a few words in Braille.
2. I would have an activity of closing their eyes and have different hearing sounds
3. I would have an activity of smelling different items so they can identify with seeing them. ( )

Very educational book for young children. Based off a true story and children can learn fact based history on their educational level. ( )

Great book that would really aid in understanding a novel by Helen Keller. The pictures are nothing impressive though and are very basic. ( )

I enjoyed this book for three reasons. The first reason is that Helen might have been blind and deaf, but it never stopped her from learning and succeeding. This can be a motivation for students who have disabilities. Helen's story and life proves that nothing can hold someone back if they are determined enough and have the right attitude. Helen could have gave up, but she kept pushing forward to make something out of herself. I also liked the illustrations in the book. Looking at the pictures made it feel like you were in the 1880's or early 1900's. You could see the clothes the people wore and what their houses looked like. It could be also a history lesson. Lastly, I liked this book because it talked about Helen's entire life and not just a time moment in her life. You got to see Helen from a baby, all the way up to her death. The book hit a lot of the important information of Helen's life and kept put the fluff. That would keep the reader's attention. ( )

This book is about a beautiful baby girl who became ill, and this illness left her both deaf and blind. Helen had so many obstacles that as a girl she was mischievous, and constantly trying to find her way. It was not until she met a teacher that inspired her to learn, and together they inspired others. I really enjoyed this book. It inspires everyone to overcome obstacles by preservation, and reveals the impact a teacher or role model can have in a child’s life. The author writes this book in such a way that a young reader will be engaged throughout the whole read. ( )
