Synopsis from Scholastic:
"When Winter, an Atlantic bottlenose dolphin, was found trapped with her tail badly damaged, she was not expected to survive. This is her miraculous story, from her rescue to learning how to swim again to her unprecedented success using a prosthetic tail. This is also a celebration of her indomitable spirit."
Winter's story is one that I believe many children will truly enjoy. The copy is comprehensive yet written simply enough for a young reader to be able to understand. Full color photographs of Winter throughout her journey accompany the text on each page, giving children a close-up look at the lovable dolphin.
In celebration of the book's release, one (1) reader will receive a Winter’s Tail prize pack!
