In the story, Brother and Sister Bear have to go to Dr. Gert Grizzly to have a checkup. Brother isn't too bothered by the whole thing, but Sister is a bit worried. The next day Sister is able to help out some frightened younger cubs while she is in the waiting room and sets an example for all the children to follow.
Overall, a delightful little book that helps relieve children's fears of going to the doctor and gives them a broader perspective about life.
were preparing for doctor visits. It is still beloved by my retarded son
who is now 31, and I have bought many copies for him through the years. It
covers all the important topics: anticipation (dread), waiting room, routine
exams, and possible shots. All of this is with pictures and words.
"Take a deep breath,
Stick our your tongue.
Come see Doctor Grizzly
While you are young."
So it begins. Sister Bear is anxious, fearing that the visit will hurt. Of course, Papa bear finds occasion to brag, because he never gets sick! AH-CHOO! sneezes he as he drives the family to the doctor's. Brother Bear worries about getting shots. But Papa Bear assurs him it'll be nothing. So the kids get their shots--not problem.
But AH-CHOO! continues Papa Bear. And a neat and satisfying ending. Yep, my kids and I loved this story. AH--excuse me!--CHOO! Gotta take my medicine now.
General checkup, followed by a shot, which Sister takes very bravely and is praised for it by the Doctor in front of all the other scared kids there.
These authors are very good about being on point about their messages and they have remained current even after about 30 years from when I was kid and now reading them to mine.
It very simply goes through what will will happen during a check up- and my boys copy it and play doctor using things they learned in the book as well as the real experiences.
It talks about shots, I think it addresses them well.

The pictures were pretty old school, and on an iPad the images are smaller than they could be. Other berenstein books read better on the iPad, but I guess this one is older. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Steven Curtis Schulze
