Scholastic revealed their new American Girl books for Fall 2018!
The fourth A Girl Named book focuses on Helen Keller, and will come out October 9, 2018.
The A Girl Named series tells the stories of how ordinary American girls grew up to be extraordinary American women. After an illness that made her blind and deaf at a very young age, Helen Keller's world suddenly became dark and quiet. Then Helen's parents hired a teacher named Anne Sullivan. Anne connected with Helen and helped her understand the amazing world around them. Helen eventually became an activist for Americans with disabilities. Helen's inspiring story proves that anyone can defy expectations and make a difference. In addition to stories and facts about Helen's upbringing and accomplishments, this book includes a timeline and glossary, plus a profile of a noteworthy and contemporary American girl following in Helen's footsteps.
