What Kind of Book is Wilma Unlimited

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

Mom of Boys
Mom of three little boys who love books about dragons, whangdoodles and magic.
5.75 / 7.0

What an amazing story! Stories like this are very inspiring. I am very awe struck at her determination to persevere amidst her disease. Many would have succumbed to it and perhaps tried to rest until it healed. Not Wilma. She proved others wrong as she braved the pain and exercised her leg until she could use it as she wanted to. Not only could she walk again, but went to the Olympics!
