My doctor, my friend ISBN: 9780824953898
Hallinan, P.K.
Published by Ideals Children's Books, 1996
Jolly comic-style pictures, showing racial diversity and disability, along with a text in rhyming couplets, make up a book that is fun but has purpose too. A good candidate for surgery waiting rooms, it also would make excellent preparation for a visit to the doctor. We see various doctors, male and female, checking children's eyes, ears, throats, necks, hearts and tummies. Simple and basic (nothing unpleasant happens 'but that stethoscope's cold!') it will provide reassurance to those a little anxious. An American book, it is available in the UK from Gazelle Books, email:, Tel: 01524 68765.
