Margaret Davidson wrote a really interesting biography here aimed at the 3rd-5th grader age group. I especially like these old Scholastic biographies because they also let my boys learn the old style of writing that was popular when they were written. That expands their vocabulary and understanding of how grammar can be used - something that seems lacking in today's school curricula.

We chose Helen Keller for our biography book. Our daughter absolutely loved this story. We were supposed to read this over 20 days, Charlotte Mason.

By Wendy Watson, Margaret Davidson. 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. Expand Product Details.

Comments to eBook Helen Keller (Scholastic Biography)

We got this book for school. We homeschool and choose this to read for our daughter for second grade. This year we read from a number of subjects, biography, adventure, fantasy, historical fiction, mystery, humor, realistic fiction, and folk tale. We chose Helen Keller for our biography book. Our daughter absolutely loved this story. We were supposed to read this over 20 days, Charlotte Mason. We just could not stretch it to last 20 days. We barely made it last 4 days. She loved it and so we kept reading. We ended up getting the "Miracle Worker" DVD from the library to help fill some of the days we were supposed to be reading. We now are looking for another biography to fill the rest of the days.

The book itself has a nice weight cover. Not so light it tears easily. However to to heavy that it inhibits beging able to keep the book open. The binding seemed to do the job, all pages are completely bound, none, missed. The pages are a yellowish color with black typeset. The paper is a nice weight, with texture making turning the pages easy. The type is on the smaller side, not a problem for me. However had my daughter been trying to read this herself the type would have been much to small. If you have trouble reading small print, this book would not be a good choice.

I definitely recommend this book as a good introduction to the world of biographies, especially for a young girl. The will hold up to multiple readings with no problem.

Margaret Davidson wrote a really interesting biography here aimed at the 3rd-5th grader age group. I especially like these old Scholastic biographies because they also let my boys learn the old style of writing that was popular when they were written. That expands their vocabulary and understanding of how grammar can be used - something that seems lacking in today's school curricula. I would suggest, however, that if you're going to read either Helen Keller's Teacher OR Hellen Keller by this author that you pick the former. The way she writes about Annie Sullivan's life is fascinating, and she repeats much of the information about Helen Keller in both books.

My second-grader daughter was looking for a book to read at school. I try to get her to read historical/inspirational books and she enjoyed this one. She is only 7, and was intrigued by how a person with no ability to see/hear could get by...and the fact that she got a University degree was one of the main reasons why she wanted to read it. I wish it had more pages, she could have read for much longer...She finished reading it in less than a week. I may just try to find her a different version of Helen Keller's life. I definitely recommend it, a true inspirational book for little girls. A great way to raise awareness about children with different needs.

My 6-year old daughter and I are using this book in our first grade homeschool. We just finished reading it. My daughter loved it and even read parts of it on her own. Each day she couldn't wait for the next part of the story. It's a very simple story telling all the important parts of Helen Keller's life.

This is another book to teach character. It's great to read to the 6-8 year olds and make available for those children who are able read it. Helen Keller shines through so many obstacles, being blind and deaf. She didn’t let that stop her but had marvelous help from her tutor. It’s inspiring! A never forget story.

Excellent reading out loud book for my 6 year old grandson. He has read me the first 4 chapters and was thoroughly engaged in the story. I would say it is a 1st to 2nd grade reading level however I am enjoying the story myself.

Wonderful hook. We learned a lot about Helen from this short book, I cried while I read the struggles Helen faced and how she came out of those struggles on top.
This book was fascinating, and it held my interest as much as my son's when we were reading. The book is straightforward without great illustrations, but the text is well written and is appropriate for elementary school children. After we finished reading the book, my son wanted to look up more information about Helen Keller on the internet!
