perfect for my 5th graders
Nice read for people who need information on Hellen Keller. Best suited for beginning chapter book readers.
I bought this for my granddaughter after she expressed an interested in Helen Keller. Her 2nd grade class had a section on Ms. Keller's life and it sparked an interest. A good book. We also watched the 1962 Miracle Worker movie. We both loved it. Thank you Amazon Prime!
I got it for my granddaughter and she loved it
Very disappointed. This a very simple book that is much too young for ages 9-12 as it states. I doubt my daughters teacher will allow her to use it for her book report.
The book is new and looks great. I bought it for my granddaughter so I am very pleased. Thank you very much!!
This is an excellent starter book that introduces Helen Keller to young readers. Deaf and blind since the age of 1 1/2, Helen communicated by a means of crude signs. Desperate to reach their child, Helen's parents hired a young "teacher," named Anne Sullivan. Nearly blind herself, Annie spelled words into Helen's hand in order to impress upon her the concept of identifying all objects and people. This book does a good job of not remaining stuck at the water pump where Annie's lesson reached its mark.
I like the way the book follows Helen's progress and follows her down the road beyond that water pump. She becomes a fund raiser for other deaf-blind children and is a supporter of the Perkins Institute for the Blind, where she is a student. She embarks on fund raisers and sends numerous letters to newspapers banging on the drum for persons both deaf and blind. Tommy Stringer, a young boy from the Philadelphia area becomes Helen's first "charge." Once having raised the money for Tommy's entrance to the Kindergarten for the Blind at Perkins, Helen's quest to do even more for other children in need snowballs. More deaf and blind children are admitted to Perkins through Helen's soldierly efforts and this takes place when she is not quite 12!
This book does an admirable job of making Helen Keller accessible to younger readers. It is a book I would recommend.
Helen Keller is about a girl who was blind and deaf when they wanted to talk to her they made sign language on her palm of her hand. She could talk but when Helen's perents died she decided to not talk because she din't wanted to talk about her parents. This book also relates with Stewart and Polly Anne. They wrote this book when she made her self to be blind and deaf she got that sickness.
The message is Helen Keller did not have friends because she could'nt talk or hear then she wanted to play but she could'nt because her friends said no because you are blind and deaf but Helen learned how to spell ground, water, and even her name, she learned how to see stuff and thats how she learned how to do stuff at last her friends wanted to play and talk with her.
My Opinion was bad because when she was 10 years old she was blind and deaf but sometimes I felt good because when she could spell a lot of stuff she was getting like a regular kid. I reccomend this book to all the kids if you guys read this book you would like it and you guys could recomended to other kids you want,if you guys like this book I recomend you to buy it and read it all the time you guys want but shows it with the author that says Stewart and Polly Anne I recomend it to you don't forget you would like it.
