The adult can determine which portions or the entire book, that is age appropriate. It is an educational book to help prevent possible dog bites or attacks, as well as helping children know how to treat a dog, in order to have good relationships with them. Too often as parents, we simply don’t think about teaching safety issues concerning dogs, until there’s a situation happening. That is not the time for teaching, but for action. Prevention can go a long way. Even if you don't own a dog, every child should be taught, as they will come into contact with dogs in other situations. This book is one an adult can use for both a child who may be fearful of dogs, and a child who is too bold with dogs, and should learn more respect. Parents know the stages of their kids as well as the child’s temperament and history they've had with dogs. All these factors come into play when teaching about safety and dogs. This is a subject that all too often doesn't get taught at all. The book closes with some silly photos to end on a lighter note.

    A Child’s Book of Dog Body Language with Pictures: Help Keep Children Safe [Kindle Unlimited] — Amber Richards (7 titled chapters) August 5, 2019 Starting off with a note to parents, this book is a pretty decently written book about how to present dogs, their body language and what to avoid when faced with some dogs. I read this on my iPad mini, which split the page up into two columns. I didn’t attempt to change it, which I could have looked into trying that, but as such, it was not easy to read A Child’s Book of Dog Body Language with Pictures: Help Keep Children Safe [Kindle Unlimited] — Amber Richards (7 titled chapters) August 5, 2019 Starting off with a note to parents, this book is a pretty decently written book about how to present dogs, their body language and what to avoid when faced with some dogs. I read this on my iPad mini, which split the page up into two columns. I didn’t attempt to change it, which I could have looked into trying that, but as such, it was not easy to read, especially with the photos included. I think this is one of those books that needs to be read in book for, or else a larger tablet. I really appreciated and liked the “Note to Parents” foreword. This is good advice for most books for younger kids, and I agree with the author about reading this particular book first and then be prepared to read along with the kids so that parents/guardians are ready for any questions that might emerge. I sometimes felt this book was aimed more at adults than children, for the style and text size. It is not a basic book; but a book to be shared by the family together. This book was not what I was expecting…I thought it was more like a picture book…but still decent enough. Three stars.

    I read this online through Kindle. This book is mainly for parents to use as a guide when talking to their children about dogs. It goes through a few points, like about how you should always ask a dog's owner before petting it, that a dog holding its tail in different ways can mean different things, and what to do if a dog does attack. I would recommend parents reading the book by themselves, and then showing the appropriate pictures to their child (talking about dog attacks may be too scary for I read this online through Kindle.

I would recommend parents reading the book by themselves, and then showing the appropriate pictures to their child (talking about dog attacks may be too scary for some children - it's up to the parent to decide what information is appropriate for their child and not unnecessarily give them a fear of dogs) and talking to them about it in a conversational way, instead of actually reading the book to the child word for word.

    A nice little book for adults and children to read together and discuss. Kids will learn how to behave around dogs and avoid unfortunate events. It shouldn't be assumed that all children like dogs and that all dogs are friendly. Good information for a family considering getting a dog for a pet as well.

    This was a highly informative book explaining such topics as how dogs expressions and posture show their emotions, what to do if a dog bites you, how to live with a dog, and how to approach a strange dog. The other struck a healthy balance between giving enough facts to protect the child without making them overly afraid. The vocabulary suited an older child. It would be great if Amber Richards wrote a version for younger children. I also think a few more pictures could have broken up the text mo This was a highly informative book explaining such topics as how dogs expressions and posture show their emotions, what to do if a dog bites you, how to live with a dog, and how to approach a strange dog.

It would be great if Amber Richards wrote a version for younger children. I also think a few more pictures could have broken up the text more and help to hold the child’s interest. All in all this is a useful, valuable nonfiction book.

    Very Informative! I thought this book was thorough and well executed. I love the way the author encourages the parent to read the book first and then with their child, since each child learns differently. With more and more people getting dogs, children are more likely to be confronted by an aggressive dog eventually. It is definitely better for children to be taught how to "read" dog moods, and to know what to do when confronted with an angry dog, BEFORE the situation arises. Thank you Ms Richar Very Informative!

    Interesting and informative read. Whether you love dogs or they scare you, this book explains in easy to understand terms all about how to judge a dog's mood. I felt this is a great book for parents to teach children all about dogs. The pictures show the different ways dogs communicate and especially the ways dogs tell us to back off. The author did a great job making an informative book read like a novel so parents and children can read it like they would any book and learn together while doing Interesting and informative read.
