In his extraordinary career, Richard Scarry illustrated over 150 books, many of which have never been out of print. His books have sold over 100 million copies around the world, and are currently published in over twenty languages.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

9 of 12 people found the following review helpful By C. Walsh on May 8, 2000
Format: Paperback
This book is absolutely darling. With a four year old fascinated by gadgets -- particularly those that let her be a doctor -- this book has allowed our "doctor" to all but open up her own private practice. Between magically transforming hairbands into stethoscopes, spoons into reflex hammers, and chopsticks into tongue depressors, Emily has turned our house into one giant hospital. In addition, trips to the "real" doctor are all but begged for. There is only good in this book, and it has provided entertainment for our whole family -- including our newest four month old addition who is a most willing patient.

Format: Paperback
Richard Scarry books have been appreciated for decades by both young children and all ages. Always useful fun and gentle. This book will help a child to understand instead of fearing anything to do with all types of doctors.
