    2. This book about Helen Keller is perfect for classrooms! This is part of a collection of books and when I looked at the names of other famous Americans that she has written about, I picked to read Helen Keller. She is such a powerful woman to read about and I loved flipping the pages and learning so much more about her that I have in the past.

    3. This is part of a series of books of "Childhood of Famous Americans' this is my third book I've read of this series and I have enjoyed every one of them. My own children are either to emotionally young for them or my 3 year old granddaughter is just simply to young to follow. So I"ve been checking them out for my personal reading. I have enjoyed reading these to get a complete history on these various Americans, some I've never even heard of. Am looking forward to reading more in this series of [...]

    4. I have always loved the story of Helen Keller and her teacher, Anne Sullivan -- both amazing, strong, tenacious women. I wanted to share Helen Keller's story with my six-year-old son, Andy, and help him see how incredible it was for her to change from a wild girl who couldn't understand anything to a brilliant, articulate, inspiring woman. This was a good book to use. It's written well for kids with good active language. Andy is still talking about Helen Keller days after finishing the book. His [...]

    5. Helen Keller started as a dumb, blind and deaf little girl because of a sickness that attacked her when she was months old. She would have ended up not seeing the world and appreciated it. But, with the help of her mom, dad, teacher, and friends, she became a person who learned how to communicate using touch. She finally saw what the world was like with everyone around her and soon she as an adult started to help other people that have the same horrible disease she still has but overcame. This w [...]

    6. This book tells the incredible story of Helen Keller, a woman that was unwilling to take "no" for an answer. It follows Helen through her early years and struggles as a child, to a hungry and ambitious young woman, to an accomplished older woman. Helen was born blind and deaf and faced many struggles in a society that thought she was simply dumb, and was unable to be taught. However, because of the resilience of her teacher Annie Sullivan, Helen was able to eventually go to college. Annie remain [...]

    7. I really enjoyed this book. I never really knew that much about Helen Keller. The only thing I knew was that she was blind and couldn't hear. My favorite part was when Anne Sullivan ( her instructor) finally after two agonizing weeks she got Helen to spell 'water' into Miss Sullivan's hand. I couldn't believe that Helen Keller met so many famous people, such as Mark Twain. Helen Keller inspired so many blind people to not give up just because they have a disability, she told them that they can d [...]

    8. 3.7 stars. It WAS a good book, and I loved the story. It was just really quick and like a 2nd grade level. :( However, the actual plot/story itself was REALLY good. I learned a ton about Helen Keller and the people, places, and things in her life that made a big impression on her. Anyway, TOTALLY read it if you are around 2nd or 3rd grade level. :)

    9. This was another Helen Keller book I read a long time ago when I was in about fifth grade. While the actual book written by Helen Keller herself is much better, this book is more appropriate for younger children who might be interested in finding out more about the inspirational figure. Young children should definitely read this book if they're interested in Helen Keller!

    10. I really enjoyed this book because it was great literature though it had some witty details to it. It was interesting what was going on the page but what was also going on in the writers head. This book was an autobiography. In the prologue it was fun to see what the writer thought in the beginning which was Hellen Keller was a snooty ,snobby little blind, deaf brat.

    11. This book is amazing. I mean it's so interesting how Helen Keller learned how to read and write and speak. I mean during this time it was very rare to have someone who was deaf and blind. I think her teacher helped the blind and deaf community from then on.

    12. This was a great story i read. You learn a lot about Helen Keller and also Anne sullivan her teacher. It is amazing what Helen learned in the time of her life with the help of as she called Anne sullivan her " Teacher".

    13. It was a reminder of how blessed I am for my ability to see. She was blind and deaf and she still achieved greater things. Great book!!!

    14. The Childhood of Famous Americans Series is a great way to familiarize 9-12 year olds with the country's history. The are written like stories, not textbooks, and are fun to read.

    15. Borrowed. It would be hard to be blind, deaf, and dumb at the same time. As a little girl Helen was very spoiled because she got everything she wanted.
