In Page-Turners—Based-on-True and True Tales, we shared 15 of our favorite picture books that are true or based-on-true stories. Do you have a favorite we should know about? Let us know the title and author here! And thanks for sharing! 






I discovered another great one yesterday! Rescue and Jessica: A Life-Changing Friendship by Jessica Kensky and Patrick Downes. Based on the true story of a rescue dog and a woman who lost her legs after the Boston Marathon bombing, it is both uplifting and hopeful.
