Helen Keller’s Best Friend Belle by Holly M Barry
This was a unique story about Helen Keller and her love for dogs. It tells the life story of Helen in a picturebook style, but focuses on how her dogs helped her feel loved and encouraged during her struggles. Although the title makes Belle sound like a main character, the story is mostly about Helen’s life. There is a page at the back of the book that tells you all the different kinds of dogs she owned during her lifetime. It is quite the list!
