Porter and Midge: Paws for Safety by Jennie Chen and Giselle Nevada is A Kid's Guide to Safe Dog Interactions. Meet Lora and CJ and their lovable pets, Porter and Midge. Porter is a Mastiff, and Midge is a Greater Swiss Mountain dog, and they and their owners want to teach you how to approach and interact with dogs of all breeds and sizes. This is an illustrated rhyming story that shows children how to be calm, ask permission from owners before touching their pets, and how to “tell” a dog they are safe with you. If your kids love dogs and they want to learn how to become responsible owners, this is the book for you.
Porter and Midge: Paws for Safety by Jennie Chen and Giselle Nevada is a fantastic book to teach kids how to interact safely with dogs. Too often, we see children running up to strange dogs and stroking or grabbing hold of them without a thought for the animal or their own safety. Written in rhyme, this story has some lovely illustrations to teach kids the right way to approach and pet a dog, not just a strange one but their own family pets, too. This isn’t just for kids, though. Too many parents allow their kids to approach strange dogs and then berate the owner when the dog snaps, without a thought for the fact that their kid’s actions may have scared the animal. I wish there were more books like this; they are such valuable reading material and really should be introduced to kids at school as well as at home.
