动物村 Animal Village - 加油熊医生 Go, Dr Bear, Go!
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.

I got this after my son loved the 山羊蛋糕店book. My 3 year old found the story so funny, we got the same book for my friend and her kids laugh everytime they read it. Great buy!
My child enjoys pretending to be the patients in the book, opening the mouth and saying 'AAAAHHH' to show me her tonsils, lifting up her shirt to let doctor check why she has a tummyache as well as pretending to sneeze and saying 'ACHOOOO!'. This is a story that a child can easily sit through.
I got this book as my young one seems to have a crydown every time we need to visit the doctors. The book has interactive tabs and cute little stories of kids visiting the doctors for various ailments. Hopefully, this can help teach my little one that the doctor is out to help and to make visiting doctors a better experience.
It’s a hit with the kids :) We got the entire series and both my kids (2 and 4yo) loved it!
This is a good read for a child who may be unwell, or needing to go to the doctor, or wanting to add this vocabulary into their understanding. It's easy for a very young child / toddler to understand. Language is simple and flip-out pages are fun. Compared to other books with have bought from My Story Treasury, this one is less regualry read than others. Perhaps that's just because we don't go to the doctor very often!
