Saving Winslow by Sharon Creech


From birth, Louie has been considered fragile. Maybe that is why he is drawn to the small, motherless donkey brought home from his uncle’s farm. Everyone predicts the animal will die, but Louie is determined to prove them wrong. In spite of all odds, Louie and his donkey Winslow will show the world the strength inside things sometimes considered the most fragile.


Sharon Creech is back with another beautiful and heartwarming story. In Saving Winslow, she doesn’t shy away from hard topics, but presents them in a soft enough light to be appropriate for young readers. Saving Winslow is a salute to the power of family, friendship, and finding our personal strength. Short and simple enough for younger readers, but powerful enough for all to enjoy.
