Librarian review

Helen Keller (Kids Can Press 3)

Braille and sign language opened the world and its opportunities to Helen Keller, who was deaf and blind. She accomplished multiple feats including touring as a lecturer and becoming the first deaf-blind person in the U.S. to finish college. Detailed illustrations grace nearly every page of this simply written biography.
