Every year, I read my students this great book called May I Pet Your Dog? As a dog owner, I recommend that everyone share this book with children. I cannot tell you how many times a child will come lunging at my Chihuahua without asking me if he/she can pet him. I am very lucky that my Chihuahua is not a fear biter, but many are and if he were, that child would be in for a nasty nip on the hand. This book, also told from a dog’s perspective, reviews the importance of asking “May I pet your dog?” The book even briefly touches upon not petting service dogs while they are working. After the reading, I had my students complete the writing prompt below. You can click on the picture to hop over to my blog to download the prompt.
