Description: Rhyming, hardcover picture books all ages will treasure! Introduce young children to the exciting true stories of Christian heroes!

She caught another wave that came,
and with her strong physique
she placed her right hand on her board,
pushed up, stood on her feet.
As those around her cheered, she felt
such happiness she cried.
With one wave all her doubts were gone
as she enjoyed the ride.

Growing up in Hawaii, Bethany Hamilton loved being outside and joining her friends and brothers in adventures. She especially loved to surf. One calm morning while she was waiting for a wave, a fourteen-foot tiger shark crept up on her and swiftly severed her arm. After being rushed to the hospital and recovering, this thirteen-year-old was determined to surf again. And she did -- just three weeks after her accident. Overcoming doubts and physical challenges, Bethany went on to compete in surfing contests around the world and has inspired millions through her strength and faith to keep riding the waves. (1990-)

About The Author: Since losing her arm, Bethany has chosen to use her experience to become an inspiration and help others to overcome adversity, no matter how great. "People I don't even know come up to me. I guess they see me as a symbol of courage and inspiration. One thing hasn't changed - and that's how I feel when I'm riding a wave."
