Pablo Puppy Games
AWI is pleased to announce the availability of new humane educational on-line resources for children. Coloring pages, a matching game and a board game titled "Walking the Dog" can all be found at: www.awionline.org/educationalmaterials. The materials are an excellent accompaniment to our delightful book Pablo Puppy’s Search for the Perfect Person written by Sheila Hamanaka. Teachers and parents alike can download the material to provide a fun and engaging way to teach young children about compassionate care of dogs. For the board game, players take turns drawing cards and following the instructions as they "walk" their dog around the board until the last dog gets home safely. Responsible pet care such as always being kind to your dog, even when he makes a mistake allows the players to move ahead, while negative actions like teasing your dog require the players to move backward. Everyone wins by learning how to keep dogs healthy and happy!
