12. Februar 2008 Photobiographies
The epic story of Annie Sullivan’s perseverance and triumph in the face of hardship will enthrall readers of every age. This pioneering teacher overcame disability and misfortune before achieving her success as one of the most famous educators of all time.

This is the inspiring photobiography of Anne Mansfield Sullivan, a woman born into a life of daunting disadvantage and social obstacle. She grew up poor, with little education, the child of struggling Irish immigrants. By the age of eight, Annie was almost blind because of untreated trachoma. Following her mother’s death, the young girl entered an almshouse, where she spent four years among the most wretched of society’s outcasts. Her inquiring intellect and determination helped her escape this bleak detention, and she was sent to the Perkins School for the Blind.

There, at the age of 14, her education began, and her lively mind soon blossomed. After graduation, she was hired as a teacher for Helen Keller, a six-year-old girl who was blind and deaf due to illness. With patience and compassion, Annie reached into the dark, silent world of the little girl, opening her mind and soul to life’s beauty. She became "Helen’s eyes." Because of her inspired breakthroughs and accomplishments with Helen, Annie was soon known as the "Miracle Worker." Annie and Helen spent the rest of their lives together—two complex women with feisty personalities who achieved international acclaim.

Marfé Ferguson Delano’s evocative account of teacher and student breaking down barriers to enjoy the wonders of intellectual discovery is a profoundly moving story.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An inspiring photobiography of the love between T-E-A-C-H-E-R, Annie Sullivan, and her beloved student, Helen Keller 6. April 2009
Von D. Fowler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The love between Helen Keller and her T-E-A-C-H-E-R, Annie Sullivan, was one that would transcend the bounds of the usual student/teacher relationship and last a lifetime. In this stunning photobiography, the caption, in the words of Annie Sullivan, beneath the one of the first photographs (the one depicted on the U.S. postage stamp), says it all:

"I know that the education of this child will be the distinguishing event of my life, if I have the brains and perseverance to accomplish it."

Annie Sullivan's own struggles with blindness when she was a mere five years old. The serious diagnosis of contagious trachoma would plague her throughout her lifetime, causing her much pain and distress. Her struggles continued when her mother later died and her father simply up and left the family. With the death of her beloved brother Jimmie, Annie claimed that she "longed desperately to die" and that she believed that "very few children and even been so completely left alone and I was." She may have been alone, but she was strong and resilient, so much so that she would not only pull herself out of the depths of despair and darkness, but also her most famous student, Helen Keller.

If the reader has read Helen Keller's, Story of My Life, much of the text will seem familiar, but for most the sweeping gallery of photographs of Annie and Helen will surprise and thrill the senses. In the back of the book there is a chronology and lists of additional resources, including many interesting web sites. For the curious, the braille on the frontispiece is in second grade braille (not embossed) and says "HELEN'S EYES A Photobiography of Annie Sullivan Helen Keller's Teacher by Marfé Ferguson Delano" It is repeated three times. This gorgeous book is one everyone one will want in their personal library to be read time and time again! I loved it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best Annie Sullivan children's bio available! 13. März 2008
Von Sarah Miller - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I don't know what's caused the mini-flood of Annie Sullivan & Helen Keller books lately, but I sure am enjoying it!

To my knowledge, this is by far the best Annie Sullivan children's biography on the market. The design is impeccable, with big, crisp photos, often overlaid with quotations or layered with maps and other relevant backgrounds. Braille on the title page and photographs of Helen's own hands modeling the manual alphabet on the cover boards were especially nice touches. Unfortunately for me, only one of the photos was new to my eyes. But barring unexpected finds in obscure New England attics, I suppose trying to find a fresh Sullivan/Keller photo for me at this point is a little bit like giving Julia Child a new recipe, so I can't really fault the book on that score.

The text is strong, straightforward, and accurate, though I personally prefer a bit more emotional zing in a biography. What can I say -- I'm a tough audience. That said, I found myself constantly nodding in agreement at the familiar details of Annie's life, and even picked up a few new tidbits along the way. Highly recommended.

I purchased this for our school library. This story is well-known, but this book did a good job of giving it a new look.
