Molly the Pony
by Pam Kaster

Hurricane Katrina devasted the Louisana coast on the Gulf of Mexico. One little pony named Molly was abandoned and alone. Two weeks later she was found trapped in her little barn. In her new home, something even more terrible happened to her, something that cost Molly her right front leg.

This is the story of the work of many doctors and workers at Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine who saved Molly's life and gave her a chance to walk again. It is also the story of the hope and courage that Molly brings to children and adults who are sick and who also have a prosthetic limb.

Illustrated with photographs in a photo album format, the story is a powerful one for all ages.

The Kids Wings unit in the Discover Magic is now also available in a 35-page download trio that includes units for Winter's Tail, How One Little Dolphin Learned to Swim Again by Juliana Hatkoff, the story of a young dolphin who was fitted with a prosthetic tail, Molly the Pony, a Katrina story of an abandoned pony who was fitted with a prostheic leg after she was rescued, and Two Bobbies, A True Story of Hurricane Katrina. It is perfect trio for any children learning about hurricanes, handicaps, prosthetics, compassion, survival, and Huricane Katrina.
