A really funny story of a doctor's day. Interactive flaps make this irresistible to toddlers and preschoolers! Awesome book giving plenty of fodder for play pretend.
Great tool for talking about getting sick, needing to wash hands and going to the doctor's.
Our family spent many evenings re-enacting scenes in this book, in the first week after we got the book, the boys requested to have this read more than 20 times! As we obliged their interest, they started picking phrases from within, and naturally included the new vocabulary in their daily conversations. This is a testament to how carefully picked books that interest kids can help form positive associations with Mandarin and help them learn!
Dr Bear and Nurse Racoon starts his day in the Bear Clinic at 9am. Along comes various patients in need of help! Little Rabbit has a sore throat, Little Pig comes with a tummyache, Little Monkey comes for a flu jab. The funniest part of the whole story is when Little Hippo has something up his nose. I won't spoil it for you! Dr Bear treats his patients and Nurse Racoon reminds them all to wash their hands.

Note: Lovely reenactment with different voices!
I love how cute the animals are and how relatable what they go see the doctor for. My little one loves to bring out his doctor set to pretend he is the doctor after we read this to him.
Love the flip out pages! Simple storyline for the little ones to follow along and also extend into pretend play (since we have a set of dr's set at home too)
Engaging and simple story line, with lovely flaps that my little one enjoys flipping.
Yes, this 动物村 series is really engaging! Great to hear your little ones enjoys it, Phoebe (:
