RESCUE AND JESSICA
Based on a real-life partnership, this heartening story of the love and teamwork between a girl and her Service Dog will illuminate and inspire. Co-author Jessica Kensky, a double amputee and survivor of the Boston Marathon bombing says, “Rescue brings so much joy and support to our lives. My husband, Patrick, and I wanted to write Rescue’s story to share with children the love we have for our own companion, to celebrate the extraordinary and varied abilities of Service Dogs, and to give insight into what it means to live with a disability. We can show them how dogs can play a special role in helping their disabled owners live full, happy lives.”
