Katrina and Winter by Nancy Stewart

All Katrina Simpkins longs to be is a normal girl. Because she must wear prosthesis as a leg, she feels anything but. When she meets and befriends Winter, the tailless dolphin, at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, everything changes, including Katrina’s whole life.
I enjoyed reading this children's book about how a missing leg and a missing tail brings a little girl and a dolphin into a life long friendship.  Back in during the winter my daughter and I watched the movie Dolphin Tale and this is a very nice addition to have as a resource.  The illustrations throughout the book are photo shots of Katrina and Winter very nicely done.  If you want a book telling a true story for your child to read then this is the book that will help build the meaning of friendship and courage in your child. 

Nancy is the bestselling and award winning author of the four Bella and Britt Series books for children: One Pelican at a Time (eighteen weeks on Amazon Bestselling List), Sea Turtle Summer, Bella Saves the Beach and Mystery at Manatee Key. All are published by Guardian Angel Publishing.

One Pelican at a Time and Nancy were featured in the PBS Tampa special, GulfWatch. Pelican has won the Literary Classics Seal of Approval, Readers Favorite Five Star Award and was nominated for a Global eBook Award.

Her travels take her extensively throughout the world, most particularly Africa. She is US chair of a charity in Lamu, Kenya, that places girls in intermediate schools to allow them to further their education. Nancy is a frequent speaker at conferences, including the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.

Nancy’s latest book is Katrina and Winter: Partners in Courage. She and her husband live in Tampa and St. Louis.
