Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Hynes-Berry
Murphy's perky text and illustrations are designed to help young children feel comfortable with the ABCs of going to the doctor, with an emphasis on well patient check up routines and routine procedures such as fever (F) and x-ray. Each letter and word gets a page of child friendly explanations such as "Inoculation"—"No body likes to get a shot, but inoculations (getting special medicine under your skin) keep you from getting serious diseases." Some of the drawings are complemented with collage sidebars of anatomical drawings, so that the entry for joints shows arm joints. This could be a useful addition to a classroom library for pre-k, kindergarten, and primary classrooms, ready for consulting as the children deal with the predictable ups and downs of childhood disease. It is too bad there was not room for a few more children of color or for chronic conditions like asthma and ear infections that are almost epidemic in some communities.
Kirkus Reviews
A straightforward alphabet book introduces each letter and pairs it with a medical term. Murphy features a wide range of medical terms-reviewed by an M.D.-ranging from "joint" to "otoscope," and includes a short sentence or two of further explanation. While aiming to keep kids "staying healthy from A to Z," letter pairings also include subjects like "hand hygiene" that gently encourage good health habits and succeed in not straying into didacticism. Funky, colorful mixed-media illustrations add texture and humor without diminishing the importance of the topics. Some readers may want to take an up-close look at the several imbedded illustrations, like the vintage anatomical diagrams. The illustrations also shed light on some of the routine practices of a check-up, and so for young readers nervous about doctor appointments, this text might just be the thing for what ails them.
