This picture book biography is an excellent and accessible introduction for young readers to learn about one of the world’s most influential luminaries. With her signature style of prose laced with stirring quotes, Doreen Rappaport brings to life Helen Keller’s poignant narrative. Acclaimed illustrator Matt Tavares beautifully captures the dynamism and verve of Helen Keller’s life and legacy, making Helen’s Big World an unforgettable portrait of a woman whose vision for innovation and progress changed America-and the world-forever.
This story is a perfect snapshot into the life of Helen Keller. I learned so many different pieces of information about this amazing woman. I loved learning more about Annie, the woman who taught Helen how to sign. The illustrations are beautiful and truly lifelike. I loved the quotes from Helen that are weaved within the storyline. The text is early reader friendly and perfect for book reports, or National Woman’s month. This book will show readers about the amazing things that Helen Keller accomplished in her life time. I highly recommend this book.
