Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Dr. Kathy Davis begins her workday early in the morning, making rounds at the hospital. Later she visits patients in the clinic, writes prescriptions for medicine, and reacts quickly in an emergency. Based on a series of questions about the doctor's typical day, other topics addressed include who helps doctors and how doctors learn how to take care of people. Vivid, approachable photographs show the doctor at work, and a clock included on each page shows readers what the doctor is doing in each hour of her day. Labels on equipment in a doctor's office will help young readers recognize things that may at first seem unfamiliar to them. A glossary, index, and FactHound, a controlled and screened website for children to visit to seek out additional information related to the book, are included. Other titles in the First Facts "Community Helpers at Work" series include A Day in the Life of a Child Care Worker and A Day in the Life of a Teacher. 2004, Capstone Press, Ages 5 to 8.
