Description

Pets may not have words, but they can communicate. Paying attention to an animal's cues--a joyful bark, a scary growl, a swishing tail--can help a child understand what the animal is "saying" and what an appropriate response might be. That's part of what this book is about. But mostly it's about showing children how to love pets gently--because pets are for loving, after all. Kids learn that teasing isn't nice, that they can choose to be kind to animals, and that if you want to touch someone else's pet, there's one important rule you should know: Ask the owner first! A special section for adults includes ideas for teaching kindness to animals, activities, and discussion starters.
