Helen Keller: Lighting the World for the Blind and Deaf Reviews
4th – 5th Grade (Biography Reference/Independent Reading) Carin T. Ford, author of this book and others in the “People to Know” series has created an enjoyable story with great detail from Keller’s life; maybe at times there is too much detail that the young reader will get lost in the most important facts to use in an assignment. This chapter book contains real photographs from Keller’s life, limited to 2 or 3 photographs per chapter. Ford has efficiently provided references for her book on Helen Keller’s life; she has also provided a list of the chronological history, further readings, and a general index. The audience for this book will find the real life details from Keller’s life appealing. I would recommend this piece of literature to students who will be preparing any form of biography project. Social Sciences/Language ArtsLesson Plan Idea: Have students create a biography poster with a short presentation to present to the class about Helen Keller using information found in this book.
This biography on Helen Keller was very informative and not boring at all. When I picked up this book I expected it to be dry, but because it was shorter all the information was interesting. There was never a point where nothing was going on.Before I read this book I knew not very much about Helen Keller. This book had a lot about her family, teachers, jobs, friends, and of course her life story. It gave details that are not well know. For example Helen joined the circus to gain money because she was going to run out.I rated this book a 5/5 because it wasn't boring and taught me. I recommend this book to anyone 13 and up who's interested in the life of Helen Keller.
I read this book very quickly. I was actually looking for a longer book that told Helen Keller's story. I felt that a book that was short was probably meant for children, however it turned out to be a very enjoyable and informative book. Don't judge a book by it's length! I knew the basics of Helen Keller, but this taught me a lot about her life that I didn't know. Very good if you want a peak into her courageous life.
This book taught a lot about Helen Keller. I remember in first grade I got my social studies book out and it had two pages on Helen Keller. I thought to myself, "I need more." Helen was a wonderful person. She learned to 'talk' with Annie Sullivan. She could go to school and she could learn everything she needed to know to be a wonderful, successful person.
I'm not very into biographies, but this book was very intriguing and left me wanting to read more. Just the thought of her life and all Helen Keller had to go through is mind blowing. I encourage people to read this book, who knows, maybe you will like it.
A quick read about Helen Keller. Gives some great information. It was a great book!
