Brad Meltzer discusses his new picture book I Am Helen Keller
What makes a hero?
When Helen Keller was very young, she got a disease that forever destroyed her ability to see and hear. But Helen wasn’t a quitter, and with the help of a wonderful, patient teacher named Anne Sullivan, she learned how to communicate—at first through hand gestures and then through speech. She also learned how to read, thanks to an amazing invention called Braille. Helen was the first deaf and blind person to graduate from college, and she spent the rest of her life helping others and making her voice heard.
