Animal Behaviour


Handle with care marking friends with animals by Paul McGreevy

Handle with care  by Paul McGreevy

Have you ever wanted to say hello to a horse? Chat to a chicken? Pick up a puppy? People and animals have lived together for thousands of years, but sometimes animals hurt people, and sometimes people frighten or hurt animals because they don’t understand them well enough.

Endorsed by the RSPCA, Kidsafe, and the University of Sydney Veterinary Science Foundation, Handle with Care explains animal behaviour, how animals talk to each other, and how children and grown-ups can safely meet and make friends with all kinds of animals, from the smallest pets to the biggest farm animals.

So if you’ve ever wanted to cuddle a calf or rub noses with a rabbit, this is the book for you. Just remember: Handle with Care!
