Helen's Big World: The Life of Helen Keller - Doreen Rappaport and Matt Tavares

Before Annie Sullivan became her teacher, Helen Keller’s environment must have seemed inhumanly small: without a way to communicate with anyone or learn about her surroundings, it was no surprise that she often lashed out in rage. Thanks to Sullivan’s hand signs, however, what had previously seemed like a prison blossomed into Helen’s Big World: The Life of Helen Keller (Hyperion, $17.99). Doreen Rappaport’s fascinating account goes from birth to death and thus provides a context that, along with many quotations from Keller herself, helps readers understand how great her transformation really was; Matt Tavares’s bold illustrations augment Rappaport’s description of how Keller learned to embrace life on her own terms. Ages 6-10. JLM
