Winter was a baby bottlenose dolphin, just two or three months old when a fisherman came across her trapped in a crab trap in the Atlantic Ocean off the east coast of Florida.  He freed Winter from the trap and she was taken to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, where specialists could take care of her injuries.  In this fantastic book, you will get to see what the people at Clearwater did for Winter, especially after her injured tail fell off.  Winter created a whole new way of swimming for herself without a tail, which was pretty amazing.  But, unfortunately, this way of swimming was not good for her back, and she still needed help.  Read this book to find out how she got the help she needed and how she is doing today at the age of six.  You will absolutely fall in love with Winter!  (Pennsylvania Young Readerís Choice Awards Program Booktalks 2012-2013)
