Helen's Big World
AUTHOR: Doreen Rappaport
ILLUSTRATOR: Matt Tavares
PUBLISHER: Disney Hyperion Books
Even though Helen Keller was blind, deaf, and mute, she was able to experience much of the world around her due in part to her patient teacher, Annie Sullivan. She even went to college even though many thought it was foolish.
This book was so enjoyable, and I learned a lot about this famous woman and her life. One thing I particularly liked was that there was some of Helen's own words included with each page. These were written in a different color and font from the other text. I read this one to my son. He thought it was more of a "girl book" he said.
