Helen Keller was two years old when she became deaf and blind. For years, she lived in a world of darkness—until her teacher Annie Sullivan came along and did the seemingly impossible. She taught this troubled child how to speak, read, and write—and Helen devoted the rest of her long and fascinating life to learning and helping others.

Enseñó a esta niña a comunicarse, a leer y a escribir. A partir de ese momento, Helen dedicó el resto de su larga y fascinante vida a aprender y ayudar a los demás.
