Jade Finds a Home: A Children's Book about the Power of Generosity, Celebrating Friendship, and the Meaning of Family

Lauren Ortega

A tiny and helpless kitten, Jade finds herself lost in the dark woods one fateful night. Hungry and alone, her luck takes a turn for the better when a kind family rescues her. However, her new life comes with an unexpected companion-Jack, the family dog.


Jack is an affectionate and goofy mutt with a heart of gold, ready to welcome the tiny but bossy kitten into his world. Jade can't comprehend why her humans adore Jack so much; he's just a smelly, slobbering pooch in her eyes.

As Jade and Jack navigate their newfound friendship, they embark on a journey of discovery and understanding. Through their interactions, Jade begins to see beyond Jack's clumsy exterior and realizes he has more to offer than meets the eye. Despite their differences, Jack's warmth and kindness start to melt Jade's icy exterior, teaching her valuable lessons about love, acceptance, and the true meaning of family.


In "Jade Finds a Home," author Lauren Ortega masterfully weaves a tale of friendship, forgiveness, and personal growth. With endearing characters and a heartfelt narrative, this charming story will captivate readers of all ages and leave them believing in the transformative power of unlikely friendships.


Join Jade and Jack on their heartwarming journey as they discover that sometimes, the most profound life lessons come from unexpected sources.
