Bugs Boodle's Book of Basics: Children's Rules for Playing with Pets is a primer for children ages 1-7. Its cheerful rhyme and colorful pictures are designed to help you teach your children of tender years how to interact safely with dogs. Then, when they begin to learn to read, they will naturally embrace the book as one of their favorites. While they are enjoying the antics of the cute and cuddly pup, Bugs Boodle, and his best friend, Teddy, they will be reinforcing some very important lessons at the same time ... for those times when you cannot be there to protect them.
Like most of us, children are naturally attracted to dogs. If they see a dog, they usually want to play with it or pet it. Unfortunately, their uninhibited excitement can occasionally place them in great jeopardy. Nearly 900,000 people suffer dog bites each year that require medical attention, and children between the ages of 5 to 9 incur the highest incidence of these occurrences (with 77% of the injuries occurring in the facial area). This is not because dogs target children, but rather because children are often ill prepared to interact with dogs.
Children learn best when they are entertained and lessons are given in a repetitive manner. Use Bugs Boodle's Book of Basics to teach your children to respect animals and stay safe in a fun way.
