Going To The Doctor by T. Berry Brazelton, Alfred Womack
A lifetime of listening and caring has given Dr. T. Berry Brazelton unique empathy for his young patients. In this warm, delightful book, he explains each step of a visit to the doctor: from the stethoscope and checking the reflexes, to the eye chart and even the shots. His humor, honesty, and, above all, his respect for the child's curiosity and worries shine through on every page.Hilariously candid drawings by Dr. Brazelton's grandson Alfred express the child's point of view while vivid photos bring the reader right into the doctor's office. With an afterword to help parents make the most of each checkup, Going to the Doctor will fascinate all children and help them understand and even look forward to their next visit to the doctor.
