Children's LiteratureYoung readers can learn all about how Dr. Kipp spends her day as she makes her rounds as a veterinarian. This book is part of the "First Facts, Community Helpers at Work Series." The day's activities are presented in question and answer format. For example, the question "Do Veterinarians ever operate on animals?" is followed by a photograph of Dr. Kipp and her staff in the operating room, and the text explains the picture. A clock appears with each picture, so the readers can track the time of the activities. Fun facts are also included such as how many people work as vets. The end material of the book includes a glossary, book references and an Internet address. The book overall shows the many roles a veterinarian has as well as the people and animals she works with. Readers can see for themselves all that a vet does via the pictures. Large type face is used, so children can work on reading by themselves. 2004, Capstone Press, Ages 5 to 8.

My 7 year old daughter had a second grade project on "What I might be when I grow up". She loves animals and claims to want to be a Veterinarian when she grows up. This was a good book to help with the project.
