Be Gentle with the Dog, Dear! by Matthew J. Baek (ages 3-6)
Elisa loves the family dog, Tag. She loves to squeeeeeeze him tight, pull his tail and tackle him. While Tag knows this is just Elisa’s way of showing her love, Tag is miserable (arrroooooo). Can Elisa learn to be gentle with Tag?
A great book for teaching the gentle touch to toddlers or any young one who plays a little too rough. The story is short and the message simple: Be gentle when you play.
