Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-In this basic introduction to the profession, Liebman describes visits to a doctor's office and a hospital. Different machines and common procedures such as giving a shot, taking an X ray or a blood-pressure reading, and removing a cast are shown and simply explained. Surgery, physical therapy, and emergency situations involving paramedics are touched upon briefly. The minimal text, which is superimposed on each picture in a white box, provides very little information. In addition, the author jumps from one topic to another with few or no transitions. The close-up color photographs depict multiethnic patients and professionals. Not a first purchase.-Gayle Modrall, Presbyterian School, Houston, TX Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
