“Life Lessons”


“Life Lessons”, includes 55 cards and a CD! The dogs share good advice in helping  kids build character, being more responsible, making better decisions, having more peaceful relationships, becoming more responsible and giving back to the community.  These stories teach kids respect and compassion for themselves and others.

Categories: ,

“Life Lessons” features stories which are “written” and “read aloud” by dogs, and since children relate well to animals they can learn and enjoy the lessons in these important stories. The cards serve as a useful tools for parents, caretakers, and educators and the kids love them!

There are 55 lesson cards in this “Life Lessons” series. The front side of each card presents a precious, often funny, portrait of a dog, and on the reverse side features a less than one minute “Read-A-Long Story” with an accompanying audio that can be found on the CD.  Kids can read the cards while following along with the audio or just listen while they look at the photo’s of the dogs, either alone or with others.  The messages truly come to life with wonderful sound effects. The children can spend hours looking at the photo’s, while listening to the stories and making “best friends” with their favorite pets!
