Helen Keller's Best Friend Belle

Helen Keller's Best Friend Belle


When Helen Keller was 19 months old, she became ill and became deaf and blind.  Her teacher Anne Sullivan taught her to communicate.  All throughout Helen's life, she loved dogs.  In The Story of My Life, Helen writes about Belle, her companion, and how she tried to teach Belle to spell.  This delightful picture book tells about Helen's life with Belle, including a vignette about Helen discovering five puppies.  One of two different author's notes tells about Helen's fascination with dogs, and the other tells about her life in general.  I recommend this book to young readers to introduce them to the miraculous life of Helen Keller.
