Annie Sullivan and the Trials of Helen Keller by Joseph Lambert-ADVISABLE

Lambert, Joseph, Annie Sullivan and the Trials of Helen Keller. Pgs. 92. GRAPHIC NOVEL. INFORMATION. Language: G, Violence: G, Sexual Content: G
When Helen Keller was two years old, she lost her hearing and her sight. As she grew up, she learned to ride horses and foxtrot. Who made that all possible? Annie Sullivan, a blind teacher who sympathized with Helen, was able to figure out a way for her to communicate with the world and have it communicate back.

A good biography for graphic novel fans. The illustrations are good and help to shed light on Helen’s problems. The text is easy to understand, but covers all the necessary information in a narrative format. Readers who need to read a biography or who are interested in Helen Keller will enjoy reading this book. EL (4-6), MS. ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Jessica Moody, Library Media Specialist, Olympus Jr. High.
