Margaret Davidson - Helen Keller

Helen Keller

Author: Margaret Davidson; Illustrator: Wendy Watson

  • AGES 8 - 10 
  • Genre Non-Fiction
A biography of a courageous woman, who was able to overcome her own handicaps with courage, commitment, and an unwillingness to accept her limitations. Blind, deaf, and unable to speak, Helen had no means of communicating with the world when she was young. With the help and friendship of Anne Sullivan and her own determination, Helen learned how to read, talk, and function in society, eventually graduating from college with honors.In this easy-to-read biography, author Davidson focuses on the crucial early years of Helen's life when she was alone and unable to experience anything but the silent darkness that surrounded her. When readers learn how Anne Sullivan helped Helen escape this silence and adjust to the world, Davidson interweaves Helen's actual words into the dialogue. Events are highlighted with black-and-white photographs, and the story is well paced to keep the attention of even the most reluctant reader. Helen's life serves as a magnificent model, displaying how much people can accomplish if they persevere.
