In this biography of Helen Keller, narrator Eileen Stevens performs in a dual role. She is both a straightforward, compassionate narrator and then shifts to the point of view of Helen Keller herself, speaking through quotes from Helen's autobiography. Through alternating passages, listeners hear a specific experience and then hear Helen's response to that experience. The biography includes scenes of the early days of throwing spoons at the breakfast table, the moment of feeling water flowing from a pump and feeling the word spelled in her hand, writing on a board with grooves, and feeling the changes of a plant's growth as well as Helen's later years of higher education and public speaking. Helen's goal of making the world a better place for all is clear. The production concludes with notes from both author Doreen Rappaport and illustrator Matt Tavares.
