In the story, Little Paws finds himself getting angry because he was teased by Duck. From this situation they all learn how to treat others around you with respect.
In this activity you will look at differences, and how it is difficult to tell what a person, or animal, is thinking just by looking at them.
Have a chat with your child to see if they have any questions or concerns.
Even though we might have some similarities (like being a boy, girl or having the same skin colour) does that mean we are exactly alike?
Show your child the ‘My favourites sheet’ and ask them to think of their answers to the 5 questions, you can also do this activity! Now you can compare your answers together.
Do you see how each answer is similar or different? This is because each person is different and has their own favourite things.

Explain to your child:
So, do you think all dogs are the same? I think we can agree they are definitely not! They, just like humans, have different moods, and if we are unlucky and catch a dog in a bad mood it can be dangerous for us.
We are now going to play a little game to see how we can best act around dogs. This information can help to keep us safe, but it is also about being fair to the dog. A dog deserves to be treated with kindness and respect, that way it should be happy and healthy, and we should be safe around it.
Show your child the ‘Dog Safety Activity Sheet’ and ask them to point out the answer they think is correct. You can compare their answers with the ‘Dog Safety Answer Sheet’.
