I recently got my Donors Choose project funded, and with that, purchased a TON of dog books, two of which I'd like to talk about today:
My I Pet Your Dog by Stephanie Calmenson
by Wendy Wahman
Before Luna goes to any class, I am sending these books for her to read (or for me to read) aloud to the group, just as an introduction. She is a friendly dog, but kids need to realize that not all dogs are friendly, and what they should to do "introduce" themselves to the various dogs they meet.
Don't Lick the Dog is a little bit easier of a read, and does have silly "rules" (like, don't lick the dog!). May I Pet Your Dog is still a story, but is probably geared toward more older kids.
