Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In this ode to the imagination, Ted, a little bear, bumps his knee, decides he needs a doctor, and then decides to become one himself when he finds there isn’t one in the house. After waiting too long in his own waiting room for patients, he locates a bunch of them at school. Lemaitre’s illustrations, which put poignant facial expressions onto otherwise fairly cartoonish creatures, provide a good visual counterpoint to Beaty’s sweet, matter-of-fact sense of humor. Ted is certainly taken aback when the school principal, a boar in a purple jacket, sends him home after Ted diagnoses him with bad breath, a fever, and foot odor. (Ted’s mother and teacher don’t like their diagnoses either.) The predictable turnaround, during which Doctor Ted saves the day, is amusingly delivered; on the last page Ted wakes up, smells burned toast, and decides . . . well, kids will have fun guessing what Ted will do next. Grades K-2. --Abby Nolan

The Ted Series is a perfect gift to get any child, it is great for a boy or a girl (especially for the 2's and 3's when they are too old for the baby toys, but too young for almost everything else, they won't outgrow this book anytime soon!) We love all 3 Ted books and wish for more! Both my 6 and 3 year old love this story! We started out with the paperback book of Doctor Ted from scholastic and had to purchase the hardcover for the set of 3 Ted books. My 3 year old has autism and is non-verbal he will wear his stethoscope and walk around the house saying Doctor Ted! speak gets our vote. The best is when he becomes Doctor-Fire Ted!
Andrea Beaty, if you are reading this....WE NEED MORE TED!!!

Through DOCTOR TED, author Andrea Beaty presents a compelling essay on libertarian philosophy. Without government interference, Ted is able to meet the schoolyard demand for medical care. DOCTOR TED is a balanced look at both the pros and the cons of a truly unregulated free market medical system. Ted just wishes to practice medicine and is not restrained by licenses--and he is able to treat ailments with methods that many would deem unorthodox, but without the FDA forcing him to go through years of medical testing before even applying his standard of care to those in need.

Beaty's work also depicts the potential risk of total deregulation. The book contains more misdiagnoses than the last time I entered my symptoms into Web MD. Nonetheless, the reader never gets the impression that Beaty is stating that such a system would not work in the long run. As you see through reading, Ted is able to refine his skills.

In the end, Ted is able to provide a useful remedy to at least one patient. Does he do so because he is free to practice as he sees fit or in spite of it? Beaty leaves this for the reader to decide.

My kid appreciated the political commentary of DOCTOR TED (I assume, we didn't really talk much about it), and I have read the book to her multiple times. Since the first time we checked it out at the library, she has requested it a few more times. She, too, appreciates this book for what it is.

My 4 year old son literally laughs out loud when we read this book. He can't wait until he is older and he can pull wacky stunts in school like Ted. We also have Fireman Ted which in my opinion is 100x funnier.

Dr Ted likes to diagnose and provide useful medical advice. The story starts at home where Dr Ted comes into being, and follows his adventures in school with his germy classmates and exasperated teachers. The medical advice is humorous, and will appeal to 2+ year olds and adults.

"One morning Ted woke up, got out of bed, and bumped his knee. `That's not good,' thought Ted. `I need a doctor.'" And the doctor that Ted needs is none other than Doctor Ted!

This book is part of a two book series (dare I hope that there are more on the way?) that feature a very imaginative young bear named Ted. In this adventure Ted become a doctor, and his good-deed-doing soon causes consternation everywhere he goes!

This is a very cute book, and my second-grade reader really like Ted's silly adventures and misadventures! I found the text to be quite good, just challenging enough, and the illustration work to be equally good, keeping my little one interested and entertained. It's quite a good book, and my little reader and I both highly recommend it.

Every summer my eight-year-old granddaughter and I cram all the children's books we can read into one week so that she can complete the library's reading program before traveling. Last summer we read 18 books, and then ranked them. This was her #1 very favorite!

Later in the summer when we met for a family reunion, she repeated the book verbatim with joy, drama, and wit, delighting all the adults at the dinner table!

I'm getting this for a Christmas present in memory of our lovely hours on the porch swing. Alas, I'm afraid she's outgrown the beautiful children's books that featured so many talented artists and authors.

While this book wasn't "artistic," it was whimsical, and it touched our funny bones and hearts forever! And now she'll have her own copy as a reminder of our lazy happy summer days of reading.

What I look for in a children's book is can it captivate my child's imagination? So many books these days are preachy, and talk down to children. Doctor Ted is funny and charming. If you like Curious George, I think you will like Dr. Ted.
