This was a biography about a young girl named Helen Keller. Helen was born a normal child, with no disabilities. At the age of 1 1/2 years old, she came down with a terrible fever and never truely recovered. When the fever broke she was unable to see or hear. She lived with her parents and sister and they along with her determination helped her to gain the confidence that enabled her to accomplish many things throughout her life. In reflection, I think this was a very well written book. Although the book was dated, it still had a very good message. Helen was truely an inspiring role model for me. Sometimes when I was reading the book, I would not have guessed that Helen was seeing and hearing impaired. She gave me a sense of accomplishment by the things she was able to do with her limitations. I think a terrific extension idea would be to have the children split into groups. One group would be blind folded and the other group wouldn't be able to hear. In this experiment the two teams must work together to perform a task working with their limitations. I think this would give the children a greater sense of appreciation for the gifts they have, sight and hearing.
