This book tells the true story of the bear Winnie who became the most famous bear in the world, Winnie-the-Pooh. A mother is telling a story to her son about how this bear came to be. It is a story about an unlikely friendship and a long journey. Long ago a veterinarian found a bear as he was on his way to treat soldiers horses in the war. He knew immediately that there was something special about the bear.

“I‘ve decided to name her Winnipeg.” Harry told them,”so we‘ll never be far from home. Winnie for short.”

I loved the way this book was set up. Some pages were full illustrations, some had text on a third of the page, some had text only at the bottom and illustrations above. The illustrations were also beautiful.

Rescue and Jessica: A Life-Changing Friendship | Patrick Downes, Jessica Kensky

This is a realistic fiction/autobiography about a girl who had trauma to her leg which resulted in both her legs needing to be amputated. She felt defeated and so did a dog named Rescue who was looking for a companion. The two end up meeting and Rescue and Jessica are inseparable. I would definitely recommend this story to any age group it is such an impacting story.

Rescue and Jessica was written in 2018 by Patrick Downes, and Jessica Kensky. This a heart-touching true story about a woman who was a victim in the Boston Marathon bombing that had happened in 2013, and a rescue dog who helped her on her journey of being an amputee. This a a great read for any ages of children or even adults! It has won the Schneider Family Award! Great read!

Published in 2018, this story was about a young girl who lost her leg and was struggling with how she would do things without her leg. Eventually, they got her a service dog that helped her do many things. She then found out that she would need her other leg removed. Rescue helped her through this hard time and they became great friends.

This book was published in 2018 and is a Schneider Family Book Award about a girl Jessica who is an amputee and she gets a rescue dog named rescue. They both find that they save each other and make each other happy. I loved this book and would 100 percent read this to my student of any age. I think this is a great read aloud and is a heart warming story. This book is a fiction book but is also based off a true story.
