June 27th is Helen Keller’s birthday.
Helen Keller was one of the first historical figures I read about as a young girl and I found her story to be inspiring. Such an excellent role model for overcoming adversity!
Despite her disabilities, Ms. Keller lived life to its fullest. She rode horses, cycled, swam, camped, traveled, etc. She expressed controversial opinions in her writings. She was an activist ahead of her times.
Perhaps your children will find her story inspiring. They can read about her or watch movies to learn more.
Remember–fun learning is forever learning!
