I enjoyed listening to this podcast about the book May I Pet Your Dog. This books sounds like it is a great way to have children learn some very important things about dogs. While many of us have dogs at home who are our pets, children need to understand that some dogs are not our friends and this book seems to present that fact well. I also enjoyed listening to you both talk about the illistration, while I have not looked at this book personally I can tell there are some great pictures to go along with what seems like very valuable text.
