    I’m reading Helen Keller by Leslie Garrett. Leslie makes a biography seem very interesting, because sometimes biographies aren’t very detailed, and don’t make good sense. I’m almost finished but not quite yet. Leslie explains everything very well! She makes everything very detailed. For example she explained what Helen Keller was like. Helen Keller was blind and deaf, so it was hard for her to learn and behave. She would throw tantrums and play pranks on her family! Just like my sister Allie.

Helen Keller was blind and deaf, so it was hard for her to learn and behave. She would throw tantrums and play pranks on her family! Just like my sister Allie. Allie likes to play pranks on me sometimes, not my family, but me. Allie will play funny tricks on me. For example, the other day when I walked in there was a cockroach on the ground! Well, it was unreal though! Leslie explains how Annie, Helens teacher, came and helped Helen through her difficulties. Annie came when Helen was about eight years old. Annie was a big help to Helen through her life, she would help her read and talk using a special way. If you want to figure out the details to this book than you better read Helen Keller!

Before starting to talk about her life,I want to illustrate that this is my second time reading about Helen Keller's life. At the first time, I read a comic book about Helen Keller. The book was more focused in entertainment than her life and works. So it was interesting to me to read about Helen Keller again. Helen Keller was born normal in 1880.

Before starting to talk about her life,I want to illustrate that this is my second time reading about Helen Keller's life. At the first time, I read a comic book about Helen Keller. The book was more focused in entertainment than her life and works. So it was interesting to me to read about Helen Keller again. Helen Keller was born normal in 1880. However, after a horrible fever, she became unable to hear, see and speak. When Helen Keller was a child, she felt trapped and different from other people. She was a furious and wild girl. Meeting Anne Sullivan changed Helen's life. Then, later, she was able to learn writing and speaking and further, go to Harvard University. Her belief was that all disabled people should be cared by society with love and that no one should be treated unequally. Worked for the welfare of disabled people, Helen Keller is called the Miracle Child. Two most impressive scenes for me were when Helen as a child learn a word "water" from touching water from faucet and when she enters Harvard University. I strongly recommend the book to others because the book is well-organized by chapters and not a high level reading with lots of pictures. Also, it's not long, only 127 pages! I think men and women of all ages can enjoy this book because this is an amazing story and so, can impress anyone.

    Jus read Helen Keller: A photographic story of a life by Leslie Garret. It's a 128-page DK Biography book. This is a great book for anyone familiar or not with HK. Her story is truly amazing, and learning about Annie Sullivan, HK's lifelong teacher and shadow, completed the picture.

    If you want to learn more about Helen Keller, this is a good book to start because it gives you a overall story of her life. The only difference is that there are actual pictures. It helps you see the process Keller went through to lead to her success.

She was born deaf and blind. Helen overcame many challenges. Keller was a devious and tricky child. She loved to play pranks on her family! When she went to far, the Keller family realized they needed someone to tame her. They found none other that Annie Sulivan. After a while, Helen learned to like Annie. They became best friends. After teaching Helen how to understand some words by writing them into her hand, Annie decided Helen was ready for school. Helen Keller went to a school for deaf and later went to the women's version of Harvard, after lots of hard work. She learned to speak a little an became a spokes women for deaf and blind people. She earned these people many rights. Helen Keller was a socialist, which was a daring task. This lost her many of her donations from the wealthy. Annie sadly died in 1936. She was lucky enough to see some of Helen's achievements. Helen achieved much, and she got to die in peace in Connecticut. Helen Keller, an outstanding woman, died in 1986. She led an extraordinary life full of challenges and successes. Review: I really enjoyed this book. I though it gave a very good description of Helen Keller's life. I learned a lot about her and Teacher, her name for Annie. Helen and Teacher went through a lot together, and this book helps to show what they went through and how hard they worked to get there. To me, it seemed as though Annie and Helen had an unbreakable bond. They loved each other so very much, though they both had their tempers. This book has many pictures which help with visualization of the story. I really liked the way the author told the story. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a good, easy read! I will probably read more books in this series.

    I liked this book because, reading about Helen made me become stronger. Helen worked hard to learn everything that she could and she taught me that I needed to start working harder. Helen is a strong person that is curious to learn as much as she can. As I read this story I became more thankful. She had to work hard even as a child just because she wanted to learn how to write and read. Lots of people just give up and don't try but Helen was different.

    This is a great biography for a 4th or 5th grade classroom. It would be a very interesting book to read as a class because of how unique Helen Keller was. It would be a good book to read aloud because it would spark many discussions. It will show the students how physical disabilities (blindness or being deaf) can affect one's life.

    Read this while working in the children's section of the library. I had never heard of Helen or Annie before but their stories are inspirational. Reading this has opened my eyes to what deaf-blind people can achieve. It's hard to rate a nonfiction book when you have no previous knowledge on the subject, but a good biography.
