Little Helen was curious and eager to learn about the world. After contracting an illness during childhood, she became deaf and blind at the age of one and was unable to talk. Helen and her family found ways to connect with each other, such as hand-signing.
But when Anne Sullivan, a teacher, came into her life, Helen discovered more ways to communicate with the wider world, learning finger-spelling and how to talk. This saw her become the first deaf-blind person to earn a university degree, and led her to tour the world advocating for the rights of disabled people.
This inspiring book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of this amazing woman’s life.

I adore this book. There are so many amazing things to be said about it. Not only is it inspiring; the pictures in it are inclusive and send a really positive message. I love Helen's story, and the messages it conveys. We all have obstacles in life, but with the right support, willpower and determination, we can overcome them and use that adversity to inspire others! I will definitely be sharing this story with the children in my school.
