From 11-year-old dog-loving Gideon Kidd of the viral social media account I've Pet That Dog, Pet That Dog! A Handbook for Making Four-Legged Friends is a highly-illustrated guide to meeting, caring for, and learning about humans' best friend.
Like many kids (and adults!), Gideon loves to pet dogs. He loves petting dogs so much, he asked his mom if he could make a website showcasing all of the dogs he's pet. That website eventually became the Twitter account I've Pet That Dog, and since April 2018, Gideon has amassed over 300,000 fans of his heartwarming and delightful tweets. In a world filled with strife and sarcasm, Gideon's account brings a bit of sunshine into so many lives. Even celebrities like Lin Manuel Miranda and Kirstie Alley are fans of Gideon's sweet and wholesome content. With each tweet, Gideon presents a photo of himself with a dog he has met and a few lines about the dog's story. He has now pet and profiled over 1,000 dogs!
Pet That Dog! A Handbook for Making Four-Legged Friends will be an illustrated guide by Gideon and his mom. The handbook will include a guide to meeting, petting, and caring for dogs, facts about dogs, quizzes, and more. The interactive format makes a perfect gift for dog lovers--as well as kids who are curious about dogs, but may be nervous around them. The "how to pet a dog" section is full of helpful do's and don'ts.
The bond between kids and dogs is timeless--and with a social media platform like I've Pet That Dog attached, this handbook is both evergreen and solidly of the moment.
