Synopsis- Sal is an older cat. He lives at an animal shelter with other cats. He’s been there for a long time. Everyone that comes in wants kittens. Today is visiting day. Will today be the day he finds his forever home?
What I Thought- This is a cute picture book about animal adoption. It points out that kittens get adopted quicker, and that most older pets are there longer. It is put in a simple way so younger kids can understand it well. The book is written more for older kids, but is a great read-aloud for younger kids. The illustrations are a warm watercolor that really makes you feel good inside. I like that this is a book about cat adoption – usually the ones I see are about dogs. The story has a happy ending, and will encourage kids to adopt animals that they will take care of.
