First, the illustrations in this book are so appealing and adorable! They absolutely enhance the text. This book is for young children. It begins by demystifying what a vet does. This will be helpful for children who need to take their pet to see the vet. The book then gives two examples of the vet at work. One case is about a dog and the other a pony. Both animals recover well of course. I found this book to be very cute and a nice introduction to the field of veterinary medicine. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this read in exchange for an honest review.

A colorful and cute way to introduce children to animal welfare. Identifying a vet as an animal doctor is a wonderful way to instill early on to care for your pets no matter how small.

Veterinarians and What They Do is a children’s book that through through colorful and simple images explains to children what is a veterinarian, what his job is and how he does it. It also tells them about the different instruments and accesories he uses to examine the animals when they are sick or need treatment. It’s a pretty simple book that gives a clear picture about the work of these professionals and encourages love in children and care for their pets.

2nd Reading: I read this again to my G-child(she chose it) and she was much more attentive, even asking questions! I wanted to give an honest review, hence the update. I'm sure we will read this a few more times now. She still didn't want to read it herself, tho, when I stumbled over the word stethoscope, she immediately corrected me lol, so Gramma here, better step up my game. 1st Reading: I read this to my grandchild, and while she said it was okay, she didn't seem that interested, though she loves Doc McStuffins. It might be a bit young for her, but I also want her to read more and this is not overwhelming to a 7 year old. It had some incidents in the normal daily routine of a veterinarian to give a child an idea of how they take care of animals. There was an emergency also, not too detailed, so no squeamishness. I appreciate a good child's book staying with realities and still be fun. Children are so ready to learn and I'd rather have them reading this. That's just my thoughts and not the grandkid's lol.
