Stories by author Nancy Stewart are always inspiring, motivating, and give you hope.
KATRINA AND WINTER: PARTNERS IN COURAGE fits this bill and to add to the impact - it’s the true story.
Katrina Simpkins was born with a birth defect that resulted in her having to use a prosthetic leg. Because of her ‘helper’ leg, she never felt normal and wasn’t very outgoing.
On their way to Disney World, Katrina’s family made a stop at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. It was a stop that changed Katrina’s life and helped restore her self-confidence. She encountered Winter, a dolphin with a stump instead of a tail. Winter also wore a prosthetic - her tail. Winter had lost her tail in a crab trap line when she was a few months old.
After Katrina’s meeting with Winter, her attitude changed and her self-confidence began to build. From that chance meeting Katrina grew into a young lady of pose and confidence. She has helped others overcome what she had suffered and learned that she is a normal girl despite her ‘helper’ leg.
Once again Stewart has presented a story that will inspire and motive. KATRINA AND WINTER will tug at your heartstrings. It’s a wonderful reminder that we can overcome most things with the right attitude.
The book is illustrated with beautiful photos of Katrina as she grow from that shy child into an outgoing young lady. There are also numerous photos of her and Winter. The book is suggested for children ages 8 to 12, but all ages will enjoy it.
