The inspiring story of Helen Keller is told wonderfully in this book. Whether done as a read-aloud or read-alone, I believe children ages 7-12 (or older) will find this book fascinating. Using just the right amount of detail, the author tells the story as a fictionalized biography (based on facts but in story form with dialogue). This book strongly supports high moral character such as patience, dedication, and persistence. The book is 96 pages without illustrations, but there are some real photos of Helen at the end of the book. I only wish this book included references to God, such as Helen’s joy at first discovering the Bible and Bible stories.
