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 children kindness to animals, activities, and discussion starters.

Elizabeth Verdick

Elizabeth Verdick has been writing books since 1997, the year her daughter was born. Her two children are the inspiration for nearly everything she writes. Before becoming an author, Elizabeth edited books for children and parents. These days she writes books for babies, toddlers, teens, and every age in between. She especially loves creating new board book series—including the Happy Healthy Baby® series, which is designed to capture the interest of your littlest readers. Elizabeth’s Toddler Tools® series helps young children and their parents cope with those tough times and transitions that happen every day (like naptime and bedtime). In the Best Behavior® series, she helps toddlers reach new milestones and improve their day-to-day behavior. Elizabeth also enjoys writing books for the Laugh & Learn® series, such as How to Take the GRRRR Out of Anger, and the Survival Guides for Kids series, such as The Survival Guide for Kids with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Both series help kids ages 8–13 get a handle on the social and emotional skills they’re developing throughout the elementary and middle school years. Elizabeth lives with her family and five pets near St. Paul, Minnesota.
