Animal Hospital is one of the best DK books for children learning to read alone. It is tremendously educational and animal lovers will immediately be drawn into the story.
The illustrated "Animal Gallery" adds to the fun.
I like this series of readers. The non-fiction ones. They come with DK's expected usual style and excellent photography. The story is told in a simple narrative style making it interesting and informative. There are occasional fact boxes with extra bits of information about a topic mentioned on that page. Though my son refuses to read these, saying they are my part perhaps because of the slightly smaller text size. This book examines the different type of animals a vet may see as two boys take a duck with a hurt wing to the local vet, who fortunately finds it hasn't been broken. The boys also see other animals taken care of: a rabbit, 5 kittens, a goose, a snake, a horse and witness a dog brought in who was hit by a car and the vet has to go straight to surgery to fix his broken leg. Quite a lot of activity and probably a wider variety of animals than the normal town vet sees but certainly educational on small animal complaints. A good book from a good series.
My first grader was having difficulty reading at the beginning of the year
but after getting her interesting books like this one, she caught up and
now she actually reads on a second grade level.
So - if you want simply a "fun" read, or your child has interest in becoming a vet this book is well worth the value. When we bought it it was under $4 - hard to go wrong for such value.
checking the same book out of her school library so
we decided she need her own copy. Great for beginning readers and very realistic. She loves
animals and this is a perfect book for an aspiring
