Never give up on your dreams (book review)

A gifted nine-year-old’s dreams of becoming an Olympic swimming medallist are dashed after a serious accident, but her recovery is so wonderful that she is able to participate in the Paralympics.

Did she win a medal? This is a gripping read for children in Years 3 to 6, which includes a strong presentation of the gospel. Maybe Mary Weeks Millard is a natural successor to Patricia St. John?

Those looking for children’s books would do well to look at this latest addition to the Day One ‘Fact Finders’ series.
