Going to the doctor is part of every young child’s life. And, in order to prepare a toddler for the experience, nothing is more helpful than a picture book like I Go to the Doctor.
The entire series of events is described in simple rhymes, from waiting in the waiting room, to being weighed and measured, to the actual exam.
To demystify items that a child might find scary and unfamiliar, instruments like stethoscope and otoscope are clearly illustrated.
Most importantly, I Go to the Doctor presents the (proper Jewish attitude) (the Torah attitude) toward healing, namely: that doctors, nurses and medicine may do their part, but only Hashem can make someone get well!
A warm and cozy book to familiarize young children with a visit to the doctor. Every child will be glad to know that Hashem is the One who really makes people get well!
