All animals are good with you.

The above sentence comes from CIRCUS DAYS AGAIN by Enid Blyton. My question is:

Could we say 'All animals are good to you'?
Might I ask native English teachers to help me? Thank you very much.

Not if you want to retain the sense.

All animals are good with you = they behave themselves with you.

All animals are good to you = they do good things to you.
