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 — and she became an advocate for people with disabilities all over the world. This inspiring illustrated biography from the Who Was...? series is perfect for young middle-grade readers.
