Inspired by the antics of his two cats, author Saul Weber has crafted an enchanting story about animal rescue and the lessons that pets can teach us. Written in a casual, personal way, Weber’s book appeals to readers of all ages.
In ‘A Lesson My Cat Taught Me’, Jennifer and her mother discover an abandoned, but friendly cat. Upon bringing it home, Jennifer soon finds that the cat has only one eye and calls the cat “Uno”, and learns that despite its disability, Uno is able to do more things than her other cat, Mr. Tickles. When Hillary, who is in a wheelchair, becomes Jennifer’s classmate, the lessons that Uno has taught her allow her to see Hillary as a friend rather than a girl with a disability.
While the premise of the book is to accept people for who they are, there is a second lesson which is touched upon in the above description … animal adoption and rescue.
