AUTHOR: Nancy Lind Corradini
A quirky racehorse named Stardust, who never wins a race, stumbles upon a second chance in life as a therapy horse. The horse's equal acceptance of all people sets the example for them to follow. Two children working with Stardust, one on the autism spectrum and one not, become friends even though they see the world differently. The story is heartfelt but the hat loving horse and whimsical illustrations make the message fun. Inspired by actual events, Anapaula Corral has shared the pain and healing Isabel experienced in this book so that parents can relate to it as well. This book also contains scientific research to spread awareness of pregnancy complications. It seeks to encourage readers to regularly check on their health before they decide to conceive a child. "
