    One thought on “Helen Keller and the Big Storm”

    1. This Ready to Read book is great for children interested in learning about Helen Keller. The book begins with Helen's childhood and all of the hardships she faced while growing up. She was unable to hear, see, or talk. Helen's parents knew they must call in help to get what their daughter needed. Ann Sullivan came to live with the Keller's and Helen was not pleased. She pulled pranks on Ann and didn't trust her. Helen learned that she loved nature and enjoyed all of the cool breezes and sunshine [...]

    2. This is labeled a level 2 book, I would say it's more closer to the level 3 or actual level 3. A beginning level 2 reader will have difficulty with some of the words and probably not fully understand Helen's situation. This story just touches on Helen being blind, deaf and mute so if a reader doesn't understand her health problems then they may not understand fully why she couldn't get out of the tree and why she acted out with her parents before Annie came. With that being said I thought it was [...]

    3. Helen Keller was a blind and mute child. She loved to play pranks on her family. One day while with her special teacher, her beautiful day turned into a nightmare. She quickly learned the weather could change in an instant and her special teacher, Annie Sullivan, was a person she could count on. Students could use this book to determine the central theme of the story and write how they could apply it to their lives.

    4. Good short read for beginning readers. Authors did a good job of discussing Keller's world through feeling-sensations. Interesting tidbit about how Helen's prank of locking her mother in the pantry led to them hiring Sullivan as a teacher.

    5. I think that Helen Keller and the big storm is a great book to read. And learn a lesson to tech kids to never leave a kid in a tree or something like that. Good thing that Annie Suvellien was OLINY in the house or Helen Keller could have died. From Julia

    6. My daughter really enjoyed this story of Helen Keller and Annie Sullivan. The timeline of Helen's life at the back of the book is interesting as well.
