Helen's Big World, The Life of Helen Keller
(by Doreen Rappaport/ illus. Matt Tavares, Hyperion $17.99 Score:)

A new generation will marvel at the inspiring story of Helen Keller who was unable to hear, see, or speak due to an illness that struck in childhood. Combining a narrative with direct quotes from Helen Keller, Doreen Rappaport has woven the familiar story of Helen and her teacher, Annie Sullivan, with a quiet elegance. Add to this the painterly illustrations by Matt Travares. Though this is a picture book format, it is definitely an inspiring story for older children 7-9.

Mice on Ice
(by Rebecca Emberley and Ed Emberley, Holiday House $14.95 Score:)

All About Grandmas
(by Roni Schotter/ illus. Janice Nadeau, Dial $16.99 Score:)

Told in lyrical verse, this ode to grandmas takes a look at the diversity of grandmas in the world. Far from the old stereotypes, the artist and author remind us that they not only donít all look alike, they all do different things, though they all have one thing in common--the love they have for their grandchildren. A keeper! 3 & up
