Format: Paperback
This is a great book in a great series of early readers. The pictures are (as in all Dorling Kindersly books) wonderful and the text is just right for kids interested in the workings of a vet office. The whole series is wonderful- they never talk down to the children, go smoothly from one level to the next and are full of interesting information laced with a little humor. Our 4 & 6 year olds love them.

All the fun and action of an animal hospital is brought to life when two boys bring an injured duck to see the veterinarian. Jack and Luke also meet and learn about other pets and how they are cared for. The vet also helps a dog who was hurt by a car, showing how emergencies are handled.

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.

Reason for Reading: Ds read aloud to me as his non-fiction reader.

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.

This really is a cute book to read to your little ones or for them to read.
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.

Yes - for sure it is a kid's book, but if you enjoy seeing what you child reads it is quite a bit of fun. The reading level was quite easy for my daughter (I imagined this when I ordered it). The good thing about books being presented with such readability is that she could grasps the ideas really well and new vocabulary "Mallard Duck" became easy to grasp. It is short but fun.

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.

Enjoy

My granddaughter age 5 loves this book. She kept
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
little Vet!

My daughter loves animals and reads as part of her homework. This is fun for her to read. It is one of her books that she ask for regularly. There are few books that she wants to read over and over again and this is one of them. It is also gives nice information about Animals and how they are taken care of at the Animal Hospital without it being boring. It is really well well written towards the age group, and fun to read.
