Answer the following question in 200-250 words:
Helen had a great love for animals and birds. Write about this aspect of her character.
Helen was very close to nature. Helen loved nature, and for her, it was her favourite companion, as it gave her solace. Even as a child, she learned most from nature and it was this love and understanding of the beauty of nature that Miss Sullivan utilized to educate her. There are instances when Helen describes how Miss Sullivan used to take her for walks wherein she used to teach her geography and other things using nature as a medium. Most of the most vivid memories of her childhood were related to nature, for example being stuck in the storm, realizing what words meant when she associated water, experiencing snow for the first time, etc. Hence it is safe to say that Helen shared a deep bond with nature. Helen's great love for animals is evident in her affinity towards books such as "The Jungle Book" and "Wild Animals I Have Known" where she felt a genuine interest in the animals themselves because they were real and not caricatures of men. On another note, as a deaf and blind child, Helen understood the beauty of mute creatures like birds and animals who might not have been able to speak but had a voice of their own. She enjoyed spending her time in their company or even reading about them.
