about

Helen Keller—author, scholar, advocate
 
An NCSS-CBC “Notable Children’s Trade Books in the Field of Social Studies”
 
"Forget that I am deaf and blind and think of me as an ordinary woman," wrote Helen Keller—but she was anything but ordinary.

When Helen was growing up, there were no facilities to help handicapped students. Still, she learned to speak, read, and write, attended Radcliffe College, wrote multiple books, and lectured all over the world. It wasn't enough to prove that she could do anything. Helen wanted other handicapped people to know that they could, too. And Helen achieved her purpose: the world saw a real woman behind the handicaps, and an extraordinary human being behind the legend.
 
Contains black-and-white illustrations.
 
“Presents a smooth recounting of Keller’s remarkable life, making clear the emotional burdens as well as the physical difficulties created by Keller’s dual handicap…. A useful introduction.”
Booklist
