The Day the Animals Broke Their Code of Silence was written for children to enjoy and for adults to appreciate. It is a tale full of adventure, humor, and lots of love. When children listen to the book they often have many questions about interpersonal relationships and seem to become more aware and sensitive to other people's feelings.
I have my master's degree in social work, and have worked with children. I don't believe in talking down to kids and because of that the book was written on a higher reading level than most children are used to. The content of the words is easily figured out through the descriptive language. Parents will stay interested and kids will increase their vocabulary while their imaginations will come to life. Children will vividly be able to depict the scenes in their minds.
Follow Zachary Dawn and his cat Muffin through the forest where they encounter many adventures including running away from wild beasts and a tornado before finally making their way to safety. On their journey they learn many valuable moral lessons.
I would like to thank my family for all their encouragement and assistance in writing this book. My husband Michael was my photographer. My sons Gabe Kushner and Warren Kushner gave me my inspiration.
I would like to thank Gabe Kushner for his original oil painting and for being my star actor.
