We're here to help you answer your child's questions about who doctors are, what they do, and why we go to them for checkups.

Have fun!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
The author of the well-known book, What to Expect When You're Expecting, has started a series to help children deal with the unknown. Realizing that a trip to the doctor can be very scary for a toddler or preschooler, Murkoff sets out to explain what the young patient will likely experience--checking various body parts, listening to the heart, getting a shot, and being measured. General questions guide each section, followed by a simply worded explanation of the procedure and an activity to help children "practice" for their trip to the doctor. As a way to ease children's fears, a friendly character (Angus the dog) is featured throughout the book to offer words of encouragement. Other books in the series deal with the arrival of a new baby, potty training, and having a babysitter. 2000, HarperFestival, Ages 3 to 6, $7.99. Reviewer: Carol Lynch—Children's Literature
