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.

Here is another wonderful true story I use: 14 Cows for America by Carmen Agra Deedy and Wison Kimeli Naiyomah.

It's the true story of the gift sent from the Kenyan, Maasai warriors to the people of the United States, after 911.
