"Pooh Plays Doctor" provides children with the proper words for common equipment they will see at the doctor's office, such as the dreaded otoscope. We endured a tearful visit when I was the one being examined - my daugher wouldn't even look at the doctor. After a few weeks of reading this book, she was confident and brave at her annual checkup, proudly naming the equipment used.
This is a delightfully illustrated book where Pooh and his friends play doctor. It is among my children's favorites.However, the binding in our copy was weak, and pages began falling out. So far I have been unable to figure where to exchange it.Summary: well-written, beautifully illustrated and printed, substandard binding.
This book was a lifesaver. After 2 years of tears at the doctors (and many tears before and after the visit)our daughter now looks forward to doctor visits. She feels very comfortable with all that will occur during the exam and is proud that she knows the names of all of the doctor's tools! I am purchasing some additional copies to give the the doctor's office for other children to read.
My daughter loved this book starting at about 18 mo. We'd read it over and over. She's learned the proper words for the doctor's tools and when we visit the doctor, she's ready for the dr to do the check-up. Every time we've been, the doctors and nurses comment on how well she handles the exam.
I got this for my grandson, to finish up with the collection of My Very First Winnie the Pooh books. He loves it, takes it to school every day too.
