Dear Reader,


Time marches on. The contractors have started putting our house
back together, and we are looking forward to having hot water, closets,
and bedrooms. Yesterday my daughter graduated from elementary
school; which means my “baby” is in middle school. My son aced his freshman
year in high school (all A’s!) Next week the four of us are going on a family
vacation, and I keep wondering which family trip will be the last before the
kids start making plans of their own, and don’t want to join us.

Your own stories and comments welcome.

Today’s newsletter is brought to you by the following sponsor.

Helen Keller

http://www.surfnetkids.com/helenkeller.htm

Helen Keller was born in 1880 with sight and hearing, but an illness at eighteen months left her deaf and blind. Keller overcame these disabilities to became an international spokesperson championing the causes of education, research and opportunity for the blind. Among her many accomplishments are publishing fourteen books, visiting thirty-five countries and meeting every U.S. president from Coolidge to Kennedy.



American Foundation for the Blind: Life of Helen Keller

http://www.afb.org/info_document_view.asp?documentid=1351


*****


Helen Keller worked for The American Foundation for the Blind from 1924 until her death in 1968. Although this autobiography page lacks illustration, it is an excellent resource for school reports. There are plenty of Helen Keller photos at AFB.org; they are simply a few clicks away. To uncover them, follow Information Center (in the upper left-hand corner) to Helen Keller Archives. On the archive page, you’ll not only be rewarded with photo galleries, but also papers, speeches, and letters.



Helen Keller Foundation: Life of Helen Keller

http://www.helenkellerfoundation.org/a-life.html

****


The Helen Keller Foundation promotes sight, speech and hearing research, carrying on the life’s work of their namesake. The biography here is short, and the best reasons to stop by are the photos of Keller and the many luminaries she visited. These include Alexander Graham Bell, Mark Twain, Charlie Chaplain, Winston Churchill, Eleanor Roosevelt and modern dancer Martha Graham.



Royal National Institute for the Blind: Life of Helen Keller

http://www.rnib.org.uk/wesupply/fctsheet/keller.htm

*****


My pick-of-day for elementary students comes from Britain’s Royal National Institute for the Blind. Although it is all on one page, this Keller biography is divided into many short sections, making it easy to read. Following the bio is a link to page about Louis Braille, the inventor of the system of raised dots used around the world to print books for the blind. There are also three recommended books, but clicking on them will take you to the British Amazon.com.
