So Much More to Helen! The Passions and Pursuits of Helen Keller
Everyone thinks they know the story of Helen Keller—she was the deafblind woman whose life was portrayed in books and movies. But take away the story of her disability and what do you really know about her? Was there more to Helen? Here’s what you don’t know:
Helen was an author, publishing over a dozen books and penning more than 400 essays and speeches. Helen was an adventurer, traveling throughout the United States and dozens of other countries. Helen was an activist, supporting causes such as women’s voting, civil rights, and healthcare. Helen was a romantic, falling in love and having her heart broken.
This is what you don’t know about Helen and there’s much more.
Using a two-tier approach of rhyming and expository text, the story of Helen Keller’s amazing, astounding, and boundless life unfolds for young readers.
