Annotation: At age two, Helen Keller became deaf and blind. She lived in a world of silence and darkness and she spent the rest of her life struggling to break through it. But with the help of teacher Annie Sullivan, Helen learned to read, write, and do many amazing things. This inspiring illustrated biography is perfect for young middle-grade readers. Black-and-white line drawings throughout, sidebars on related topics such as Louis Braille, a timeline, and a bibliography enhance readers' understanding of the subject.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2004 Spring)
[cf2]Jefferson[cf1] offers an adequate introduction but occasionally gets bogged down in detail (however, his sexual relationship with Sally Hemings is included as fact). [cf2]Keller[cf1] reads more smoothly. Black-and-white drawings and boxed sections on topics such as the Boston Tea Party and Braille expand the biographical information, but the overall presentation is lackluster. Timeline. Bib. [Review covers these Who Wasà? titles: [cf2]Who Was Thomas Jefferson?[cf1] and [cf2]Who Was Helen Keller?[cf1].] Copyright 2004 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
