Jubilee: The First Therapy Horse and an Olympic Dream
by KT Johnston
Jubilee tells a gorgeous and inspiring story that will be adored by horse lovers and also by those who enjoy uplifting stories. It is a biography about Lis, a talented rider, who developed polio. Lis was told that she would never ride again. But the human spirit can do more than others can possibly imagine as readers discover here. Follow Lis and Jubilee in this story that is set in the 1940s and 50s. There is an incredibly touching moment in this story; wait for it.
In this title, readers learn that horse and rider needed to work together effortlessly. To me, it appears that the author and illustrator did this as well.
I loved this book and am eager to share it with readers.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
