This is a decent book for a certain subset of people.

Namely, if you don't know crap about dogs, and you have no idea how to teach your children to be safe around them (I know there are people like this out there.. I'm related to a few of them), this book will teach you how to keep your children safe around dogs. Some nice pics for reading dog body language, too, so your inappropriately friendly child won't run at a fearful or aggressive dog .. and get bitten.

For most dog-savvy families, though,

Another brief but good book by two excellent authors.

A very quick and basic guide to keeping a safe home with a dog and a child. Some of the advice is very obvious (don't give your dog a baby doll to play tug of war with and then get upset when it mauls your baby) and some of it is slightly more informative, like bumping into the dog and taking away his/her food to check the way he or she is probably going to react to a baby. I didn't feel like it was all that eye-opening, but it's worth the read for first-time parents and pet owners.

This could be helpful to someone who has never had a dog and knows nothing about dogs. Maybe. This contained common sense points, things that aren't even child-specific in my opinion, but good suggestions otherwise. There's not a lot of actual advise, and often times defaults to "seek professional help" for anything that might be a behavioral problem. There are much better sources of info out there, and I'd suggest skipping this one.

I read this book during one singular bubble bath, that's how short it is. While it did raise some great points - ones that I will take to heart - you can find every bit of this information one the web. For free.

A quick and easy read with helpful information. I plan to refer to the suggestions in this book when our first baby arrives (and grows through childhood).
