Finding my way around help

I will be showing the way around to some experienced programmers
new to python.
Among other things I get:
| Enter the name of any module, keyword, or topic to get help on writing
| Python programs and using Python modules. To quit this help utility and
| return to the interpreter, just type "quit".
However I find it returns to the normal REPL with just a return;
no quit. I would have expected a special help REPL to keep running
till I give quit. What gives?
Also I tried
This shows the docstring for class _Helper(builtins.object)
However if I do this
>>> from pydoc import help
I get more useful help.
Seems the wrong way round...
Above is true for 2.7 and 3.4.
