It’s filled with *so* much that most people probably don’t know about Keller, and really covers the span of her life, instead of just covering just the basic (and most typically known) facts about her life.

In addition to this, it’s chock full of pictures, and made very well, too; the thick, glossy pages will last through many, many readings, and certainly add to the visual appeal of the book, as well.

I was just delighted with this book. So was my daughter.

While this series is designed to be useful to younger readers in learning about the lives of famous people I found HELEN KELLER: A PHOTOGRAPHIC STORY OF A LIFE by Leslie Garrett to be very satisfying as an adult. The pictures are wonderful but the text is also outstanding. I would highly recommend this to be used by families who want to interest their children in learning. Along with the film THE MIRACLE WORKER this would provide an excellent insight into the life of a very inspiring person and to those who taught her.

Helen Keller was a strong intelligent woman. She has been an inspiration to me since I was in grade school. I introduce my students to her every year. This book contains many photos I'd never seen and is a nice biography of her life.

Great book. Great pictures. Easy to read and understand for my son in 8th grade.

I had always been captivated by the concept of her life. Then, years later by sheer coincidence, got involved rescuing deaf blind dogs. I had to know what their lives are like. So I started reading Helen, as many people who have these dogs name them Helen or Keller. I was astounded, dumbfounded, beyond moved, by her JOY OF LIFE! My biggest fear was that I was not understanding the dark and silent world my dogs inhabit, and having delved vicariously into their thoughts, I understand they do have silly joy, amazing intelligence, and ABILITY.

Helen will always be a motivating force in my life.

This woman accomplished far more than one thousand sighted hearing humans ever dreamt of.
