My kids (5 & 8) loved this book -- the engaging real-life story, the amazing pictures -- plus, it started a family discussion about other-abled people and overcoming challenges in general. We also checked out the website www.winterstail.com where they had fun playing games. This book is definitely worth buying.

Easy to read, educational and enlightening true story about a dolphin who beat the odds and has given hope to humans with their own challenges. A great gift for the holidays.

This was a fantastic book. Although it is a children's book, I bought this for my mom. She loves dolphins and so I thought that she would enjoy reading this amazing story. My husband and I both ended up reading it before we sent it to my mom for Christmas. She loved it. It is a great book to read at any age and really makes you think about how you face challenges in your life. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.

Remarkable story of a "disabled" dolphin. People caused the problem, but people also helped her out. Good for kids of all ages: if disabled, it should give some encouragment; if non-disabled, maybe allow for some thinking and compassion.
