This is a very good resource. It helps clarify not only what happens during a visit to an Acupuncturist, but also *why*. It is well illustrated. The colors and animals are bright and animated, but not overwhelming. It's long enough to cover the basics of Oriental medicine and short enough to fit a child's attention span.
If you are an Acupuncturist trained in pediatrics, you should order a couple of copies. Many parents are going to want to take it home to show their children. Some to better explain what happens when mommy or daddy get treated, others to put their children at ease prior to their first treatment. If you are a parent, it can make a child's first appointment something they look forward to instead of being scared.

My nephew really enjoys the story and quickly connected to the characters - especially Bobby Bear. Packaging adventure and Chinese Medicine together makes for a very friendly and approachable introduction to acupuncture and stokes curiosity in a way that I would have never imagined. I hope this team finds new adventures for Maya to take and share with us.
