Best Behaviour Series: Tails Are Not for Pulling by Elizabeth Verdick (Board Book)
If pets could talk, what would they say? Maybe “Fur is for petting, backs are for scratching, noses are for nuzzling . . . and tails are not for pulling!” Toddlers and pets belong together—as long as toddlers don’t chase, grab, squeeze, yank, and tease. In simple words and delightful illustrations, this book teaches the basics of kindness to animals: careful handling, awareness, safety, and respect. It also includes helpful tips for parents and caregivers.

"Great book that helps kids realize why we should be kind to pets. I loved the part where the author express how animals feel when we're being annoying to them and how kids feel after that too. The book is written in a positive way and can teach a great lesson to kids. My 2 year old is already better with his grandma dog!"
"Great situational learning, informational book. It is in the same style as the author/illustrator's "Feet Are Not for Kicking," "Germs Are Not For Sharing," and others. Children need explicit instruction on how to play with animals without hurting them. Giving the animals personification helps children understand emotions."
