Corinne's Fin, by Dayle Dabney, earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval

Corinne, a gold-fish, is the fastest swimmer in Lavendar Lake.  She is revered by the young fish which all aspire to swim like her.  But one day Corinne experiences a tragic accident and her fin is permanently damaged.  Nobody knows how to talk to her, or what to say after the accident.  They want to help, but they just don't know how.  Finally one of her friends helps her understand there's more to her than her damaged fin.

Corinne's Fin is an inspiring book about learning to cope with disability and finding a "new normal".  Author Dayle Dabney tackles a tough subject in a tender way that kids will find highly relatable.  Powerfully expressive illustrations by Ashley Teets help reinforce Dabney's message of hope for young readers.  Corinne's Fin is recommended for home and school libraries and for use in clinical settings.  This book earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.
