If pets could talk, what would they say? Maybe "Fur is for petting, backs are for scratching, noses are for nuzzling . . . and tails are not for pulling!" Toddlers and pets belong togetheras long as toddlers dont chase, grab, squeeze, yank, and tease. In simple words and delightful illustrations, this book teaches the basics of kindness to animals: careful handling, awareness, safety, and respect. It also includes helpful tips for parents and caregivers.
