Publisher's Summary

Helen Keller's autobiography, The Story of My Life, is not only fascinating and inspiring, but it also includes wonderful description, an elevated vocabulary, and deep insights into life. Accompanying this autobiography is a beautifully written biography, The Touch of Magic, about Helen Keller's teacher, Annie Sullivan. As a destitute, misbehaving orphan who is going blind, Annie experiences and overcomes the extreme trials in her life, which prepare her for the great work she does with Helen Keller.

Critic Reviews

"After reading these two books, I knew they needed to be put together, to be read one right after another. First, you read about the absolutely fascinating life of Annie Sullivan, and see how her unique experiences prepare her for her life's work with Helen Keller. Then, you read the story of Helen Keller and her perspective of how Annie Sullivan completely changed her life. These two noble lives were beautifully entwined, just as these two books entwine to show a full and beautiful picture of the incredible Helen Keller story." (Jenny Phillips)

Love this book, but...

I live this book, and I really enjoyed the reader. It was so interesting to hear about Anne Sullivan’s side of the story as well. It was a story I hadn’t heard about before. The beginning was my favorite part, but by the end It got quite boring. It was hard to listen to the poor money choices these two girls made, and how for quite a while it was all going down hill.
