Cherri Ryan & Christina Booth
A young girl builds a small boat and names her Spirit. Spirit sails safely across a miniature pond and a creek, but in the river she is tossed against a rock. Her timbers shatter. The girl searches until she finds the pieces, mending the little ship and making it stronger. “My spirit was not broken.” Gently illustrated in blue, green and grey, this fable-like tale parallels the boat’s endurance and bravery with the girl’s resilience and determination.
