by Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara
When I was in elementary school I read a biography about Helen Keller. The changes that came to her after a bout with illness seemed unimaginable to me. Not to be able to see OR hear; how could one go on? Having the right teacher can make all the difference and indeed Helen went on to achieve more than many of us. Hers was such an inspiring life.
I enjoyed Ms. Sanchez Vegara’s telling of Helen’s story although it focused less on Helen’s frustrations than the book I had read. The text is accompanied by illustrations that invite young children in. I hope that they will be as inspired by Helen as I was (and am).
