  • Jay Hahnkamp's newest book, My Name is Sara: I am a Racehorse!, is a story based on one of the author's calves from his family's Montana ranch. They named the calf Sara after a girl they have known for years. Like the calf, Sara was different by many people's standards, but very loved and protected.

    Sara, the fictitious character in the book based on the author's calf, is not "normal" by bovine standards, but like the girl Sara, she is the most loved and protected critter in the barnyard. You see, Sara doesn't know she's different. She believes she can be anything - even a racehorse!

    Sara's adventures will inspire young and old alike. Accompanied by fifteen charming illustrations by Bonnie Shields and nine photos of the real calf Sara and her family, My Name is Sara is a touching story that will become a heart-warming favorite.
