Happy Birthday, Helen Keller!

Today is Helen Keller’s birthday!

Helen Keller was a miraculous woman who, against all odds, overcame tough obstacles and became a champion of education and rights for the disabled. When Helen was 19 months old, she lost her ability to both hear and see. Helen was lost in a world of silence and darkness, until she met a woman named Anne Sullivan, who taught her to communicate and opened up her world to the joys of education. As Helen grew up, her desire to learn grew and she eventually set out to spread her love of learning and literacy throughout the world. She traveled to 39 countries, advocated for the blind, and showed everyone that having a disability doesn’t stand in the way of greatness.

If you want to learn more about Helen and her accomplishments, you should check out Club Shop online. We are offering two books about Helen’s life: Young Helen Keller written by Anne Benjamin and illustrated by Julie Durrell, and an Easy Reader Biographies book called Helen Keller: An Inspiring Life by Carol Ghiglieri.

These books are great summer reads and a wonderful way to honor an inspirational woman. I highly recommend them!
