Helen Keller (Women of Our Time) by Kathleen V. Kudlinski



Grade 3-5- Kudlinski describes the major episodes in the life of Helen Keller-the illness that left her deaf and blind, the arrival of teacher Annie Sullivan, her education, and her world travels. Coverage is brief; Keller's struggle to achieve a college education is given only a few pages. However, in the information that is given, Kudlinski manages to avoid too laudatory a tone. It is not a complete biograpy of Helen Keller, but a short read for children. It is a book worth directing children to in the school library, or that teachers should include in the third to fifth grade classroom. Helen Keller accomplished so much despite her handicap.

This book is cute. Great for a short read for a young reader. However i wish it has touched upon all that Helen Keller had done in her life. She herself said it would be awful if all she is ever remembered for was her work with the deaf and blind. She worked for women's rights, changing laws to help newborns, fighting for the rights of the poor... she was so much more than a child who was deaf and blind.

Interesting but it can get boring at some times and biographies are not my thing so it can depend on you

An inspiring story, a good read for children, and positive story in giving to others, as well as in overcoming adversity. It is not a complete biograpy of Helen Keller, but a short read for children. It is a book worth directing children to in the school library, or that teachers should include in the third to fifth grade classroom. Helen Keller accomplished so much despite her handicap. Her instructor was young, around 20 years old, when she started teaching Helen Keller. Her perseverance paid off, and the story can be inspiring to children, some of whom might become special education teachers or somehow involved in helping special education children. A recommended book for children.

This book called "HELEN KELLER A LIGHT FOR BLIND ." By Kathleen V. Kudlinski and illustrated By Donna Diamond. It tolled you about how HELEN KELLER lives, how she ate, how she can read and how she can talk. I like this book because it was sad and happy. The date was June 27,1880 when HELEN KELLER when born, March 3,1887 when the teacher came, June 1,1968 when she died, and more. The fact was HELEN KELLER had a baby sister named Mired, when she died, and more. It this book is very good so you should read it.

This book is a very inspiring story by a wonderful author. Ms. Keller's life had never been clear to me until I read this book and realized how hard it was for Helen. It amazed me that an almost blind teacher taught A BLIND-DEAF girl to speak, write, and understand the world around her. If you are looking for a touchy story, read this book and discover the magic of this amazing woman's life.
