Personally, I'm not a huge Dora fan, but my daughter is, so I'm looking past the fact that it's Dora to review it.

We've had Dora goes to the dentist for awhile now, and it was really helpful when we went to the dentist the last time, so I figured this would be a good addition to our Dora library, and I was right.

Like in the dentist book, Dora introduces several of the doctor's tools (stethoscope, otoscope, reflex hammer, etc.) to the reader, as well as showing the nurse and waiting room.

Anything to help my child calm down at the doctor's office is great, and when she knows what things are, sometimes she's just calmer overall. We'll have to see at the next visit if it really worked, but at least she knows now what the otoscope is.

My 2-year-old is terrified of going to the doctor, shot or not. While kids do often need shots at their doctor visits, they don't always. It's nice to have a book for the visits when she won't be getting a shot. Your child doesn't have to already be a fan of Dora to enjoy this book.

Cute book to get kids used to going to the doctor. Well done and incorporates Spanish and English. My 3 year old daughter really likes this book.

Although this book is as formulaic and contrived as all the other Dora books (and perhaps moreso), it is a good way for young children to feel comfortable going to the doctor. And, although contrived, it is rather cute how they worked going to the doctor into the typical three-stop adventure, complete with the map.

First, Dora and her mother have to find and get on the Number 4 (Numero quattro) bus, then they have to go to the waiting room, and then the nurse will call them back to the examination room for the check-up. Once in the examination room, first the nurse weighs and measures Dora, then the doctor examines her by listening to her heart, testing her reflexes, and looking at her throat. And finally, because she's such a good patient, Dora gets to pick a prize from the prize basket (and she needs your help to reach it!).

My daughters enjoy playing along with this book, from pressing the buzzer to get into the waiting room (something they find intriguing, since our doctor's office is just open), to finding the heart piece to complete the puzzle to playing along with the examination itself. They've never been worried about going to the doctor or had any bad experiences there, so this book is just a fun way of play acting the experience.

As a mother of daughters, I like the fact that the doctor is female. I would have liked, however, had the book covered some things about going to the doctor that can be painful, such as getting shots. 3.5 stars.

I bought this for a 2 year old that loves Dora. The content of the book is fine, but the ebook format shows two pages at once on the Kindle screen. It is just too small for her to enjoy.

This is a great childrens book for addressing why we go to the doctor and what they will be doing. It just covers the basics, listening to the heart, looking in the ears and eyes, but it was enough to help ease my 3 year olds fears about going to the doctor. It's one of her favorite books now!
