PreSchool-Grade 2—A little boy learns from Harry, a dachshund, how to treat an unfamiliar dog safely and politely. Harry's friendly, gentle voice reminds the child to ask for the owner's permission to pet the dog, allow the animal to sniff his hand, and approach from the side. The pooch coaches the boy as he encounters an excited puppy, a guide dog, and an unfriendly canine. Cues such as growling and tail wagging are explained. Straightforward guidelines and a positive, encouraging tone make this book appealing and practical. Young dog lovers will delight in the variety of breeds shown in the bright, clear illustrations. Harry's advice will certainly come in handy, and dogs will appreciate the safety and consideration shown by readers who put the techniques into practice.—Amanda Moss, Maywood Elementary School, Monona, WI

Even if you do not have a dog, PLEASE get this book for the children you love. Make sure there is a copy in your child's classroom. I have had too many experiences when, while walking my dog on his leash, children have ran towards him, laughing and asking, "May I pet your puppy?" and not waiting for an answer. My dog's Rule #1: Don't get between me and my Mommy. That scares him! And even adults do not know that after asking permission, you extend your hand ***palm down*** to the dog to sniff first. An upturned palm is an aggressive move, to a dog - a hand that might strike or grab him or her.
Very highly recommended.
