Helen Keller's the Story of My Lifeby Helen Keller
Helen Adams Keller (1880-1968) was an American author, political activist, and lecturer. She was the first deaf and blind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree. The story of how Keller's teacher, Anne Sullivan (1866-1936), broke through the isolation imposed by a near complete lack of language, allowing the girl to blossom as she learned to communicate, has become widely known through the dramatic depictions of the play and film, The Miracle Worker.

This is such an inspiring story. It covers every struggle throughout her years. I might have cried a few times because of how touching this story is.
I am a highschool student in the ninth grade doing a research project for my English class. The person i chose for my research project is the well- known Helen Keller. Helen Keller is known for being deaf and blind and doing things that deaf and blind people cannot do, which is so interesting to me. This book is very helpful to get to know who is Helen Keller. I enjoyed reading obsticles that Helen Keller went through. Her obstacle interested me because it wasn't usual for other deaf and blind people to do the things she did. There were some chapters that were not so interesting but most of them were interesting. What I also like about this book is that it is very specific on her childhood life which helps a lot to know how her sickness started. This book includes the places where she has moved to, new people that Helen meets, and how Helen Keller overcomes her big challenges in her life of being deaf and blind. This book does make you think about the other deaf and blind people and how they overcome their challenges. We also see how much Helen suffers throughout her whole life. We go through many adventures and struggles with Helen Keller. This book inspired me and made me see clearer about deaf and blind people. The part that I really enjoyed about this book was that it has very specific details about every year of Helen Keller's life. I recommend reading this book for a project or even just for fun.
