    Herein lies the classic true story of Helen Keller, written by Margaret Davidson. Learn about an unbelievably determined girl whose life in this world was a dark, quiet struggle before the day her teacher, Annie Sullivan, joined her. Though Helen and Annie got off to a rough start, it didn't take long for a miracle to happen - Helen finally grasped that everything had a name and a meaning, and she was no longer trapped in her own world. Annie taught her words by signing into her hand, and Helen listened with her palm. When she was twelve years old, she stubbornly decides that despite her challenges, she was going to go to college. Teacher and student spent the next six years in intensive study so that by the time Helen was eighteen she would be prepared. She was - she graduated after four years cum laude! She went on to dedicate her life to helping others. She visited injured soldiers from World War II who had found themselves blind and feeling like they didn't want to go on, and she spoke all over the country and sometimes overseas. She was always up for adventure and had a deep appreciation for the written word and good friends.

    This is the most proud lighthouse that ever was. It was built on the sharp point of the shore by the Hudson River. Behind it lays New York City, and all of the incoming boats depend on its light, which serves as an alarm that says, "Stay away!" If it wasn't for the lighthouse, the boats would all crash up ashore. Every night at dusk a man comes, keys in hand, to turn on the gas so the lighthouse can do its job. Gradually, a bridge is being built right next to the lighthouse, and in the midst of a storm, the fog rolls in. It grows later and later, and the man with the keys still has not come. What will happen when the boats come in and there is no light?

    Not to leave out the eager younger children, this volume provides mini Five in a Row- style lessons for youngsters. This book; however, is divided into two parts, the first being similar to the other curriculum guides. Just as in the original series, each unit is built around a simple, classic children's storybook. This book differs from the older volumes in that it is not structured around a week. The purpose is simply to provide an array of activities for each book that engage children and lay the foundation for further learning. Some of the activities are subject related, such as Bible, science, math, language arts, and art; others are various skills such as learning shapes, sequencing, colors or problem solving, and the rest are centered on specific topics, like relationships, contentment, birthdays or another book-related idea. The second part of this book focuses on arming parents with creative ideas to build learning readiness. This section is a treasure trove of activities that help develop reading readiness and motor skills or focus on the arts. Additional activities also capitalize on teachable moments that arise during bath time, in the kitchen, or during a trip to the store. 149 pgs. ~ Steph
