Katrina and Winter, Partners in Courage, Earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval

Katrina and Winter, Partners in Courage is the heartwarming true story of a young girl who found inspiration in the most unlikely place.  -Katrina, who was born with a birth defect, was able to walk with the aid of a prosthetic leg.  But she was extremely self conscious about her "helper leg" which she did her best to hide from people.  One day, while on a family vacation, Katrina visited a marine aquarium in Florida.  Katrina was amazed to see Winter, a dolphin with a tail that had been maimed in a crab trap incident.  When Katrina learned that Winter was able to swim with the assistance of a prosthetic similar to her own she felt a sudden connection to the dolphin.  

Through the strong connection Katrina found, she became inspired.  With a new outlook on life she no longer felt the need to hide behind her limitations.  Instead, she became an inspiration to others in her unwavering determination to never letting her disability hold her back.

Katrina and Winter, Partners in Courage is sure to inspire young readers to overcome limitations and reach for their dreams.
