Helen Keller was born in Tuscumbia, Alabama on June 27, 1880. When she was just a year and a half old, she was left blind and deaf from an illness. In a very simple text, the author covers the important facts of Helen Keller's life. Besides her extraordinary work with teacher Anne Mansfield Sullivan, she published several books and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1964. Her bravery, brilliance, and spirit brought hope to millions of disabled people.

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
