Each animal brings his or her own personality to the story.

Author Sal A. Edwards sets out to teach children important life lessons using a cast of memorable animal characters in his wisdom-filled new children’s book, “A Forever Family: Living in the Big House” (published by Inspiring Voices).

“A Forever Family: Living in the Big House” tells the story of a generous family who opens their home to adopt homeless animals. First to arrive is Stubs, a gray cat with no tail, who is jealous when Max the white dog gets adopted five years later. Stubs and Max learn many lessons as the family continues to grow. Bitsi the kitten joins the family; next comes a beautiful bird named Sunshine. Last to join the family is another dog named Lolita.

Each animal brings his or her own personality to the story. They have many differences and do not always get along but they each learn and teach lessons in his or her way. Children will delight in the adventures of this family of furry friends in a tale that addresses adoption, compassion, diversity, acceptance, bullying, making friends, listening to grown-ups and more.
