Quick Overview

Since its first publication in 1991, Hannah has been hailed by critics, including the Nat'l Federation of the Blind, as one of the few fine children's books dealing with blindness. It's 1887, and nine-year-old Hannah in confined to her house--until a new teacher comes to town. IRA Teachers' Choice.


Nine-year-old Hannah would do almost anything to go to school with all the other children in town. But Hannah is blind and her parents keep her at home where she is "safe." Then Lydia Robbin comes to town. She's a strong-willed teacher who accomplishes a small miracle: she convinces Hannah's parents to send her to school. At first Hannah is overjoyed. But she soon learns that there are many obstacles--and people-- that stand in the way of her education. Hannah will need tremendous courage to prove to her classmates, her parents and herself that Miss Robbin was right to believe in her. Size 0.17" H x 7.74" L x 5.48" W, 64 pages
