Don’t Give Up
If you keep on going 
And never stop, 
You can keep on going, 
You can make it to the top.
Life is full of mountains, 
Some are big and some are small, 
But if you don’t give up 
You can overcome them all. 
So keep on going 
Try not to stop, 
When you keep on going 
You can make it to the top.
Look at the picture and describe it.
Why do you think the boy is happy?
It was the summer of 1880. A healthy baby girl was born 
in a small town in Alabama. Her parents loved her dearly 
and named her Helen Keller. But one day, the baby 
became ill and day after day, her fever stayed high. 
Everyone in the family tried to help her to get better, but 
all they could say was, “There is nothing  more we can do. 
The baby may not live.”
Helen lived. But she was not the same after her illness. 
“Something is very wrong,” her mother said. At last they 
found out what was wrong. The child could not see or hear.
The baby grew into a little girl. Her parents felt sorry for 
her. Helen often cried and held on to her mother. “Give the 
poor child what she wants,” her father would say. 
Though Helen could not hear or see, she was a bright 
little girl. Some people thought Helen could not learn 
anything. Her mother did not agree. “Helen is very smart,” 
she said and added, “the problem is, how can we reach 
her? She is locked 
up inside herself.”
Helen began to 
grow wild. She 
would not let 
anyone comb her 
hair. Her clothes

were always dirty. She was often angry. Sometimes she 
even lay on the floor and kicked her feet.
Her parents thought that they should find a teacher 
for her. Miss Sullivan, a young teacher agreed to help 
Helen to learn to see the world. Miss Sullivan gave 
Helen a doll. “D_O_L_L” spells 
doll. She spelt the 
word with her 
fingers into 
Helen’s hand. 
She made the 
letters with 
special hand 
signs.
Helen copied 
her teacher and 
spelt D_O_L_L 
too, but she did not 
understand what she was 
doing. Helen liked Miss Sullivan. She was strict but 
kind.  She spelt a lot of words for Helen, on her hand, 
day and night, to make Helen understand.
One day, her teacher made Helen put her hand into 
running water. Then, she spelt W_A_T_E_R. Suddenly 
Helen understood that W_A_T_E_R meant something 
wet, running over her hand. She understood that words

were the most important things in 
the world. Words would tell her 
everything she wanted to know.
