I have been looking for books about doctors/hospitals because my 2yr old wants to know what her Daddy does at work. So I was NOT looking for books that are about or even mention being scared of going to the doctor-- she is not scared of doctors whatsoever and I did not even want that possibility to arise in her imagination. This is a great book in that respect-- it is not about how doctors are not scary, etc... it's just about what happens when you go there! I've found that telling my kids not to be scared of something simply makes them think that there is something to possibly be scared of. So we don't use that language when it comes to doctors, dentists, etc.
Most of the scenarios are very true-to-life, which was also important for my needs. The main things that are different from (most) real doctor's offices is that this book does not show any nurses and the exams take place in the doc's office as opposed to an exam room! So, those elements were a tiny bit disappointing, but other than that, it's pretty realistic and uses the real terms like otoscope and immunizations. These are words that our kids know, so that is really nice reinforcement. My daughter's favorite part is the chest/throat exam. My favorite part is the beleaguered mom with the screaming infant in the waiting room.
Definitely a great book if you want a friendly, simple story about what goes on at the pediatrician's office.

Wonderful book about going to the doctor. I keep it in my office (I'm a pediatrician) and have read it to my son.
Pros: Beautiful illustrations, covers lots of aspects of going to the doctor, from sick through well visits, but still a short story. Has a female doctor (like most pediatricians as of 2012).
Cons: Shows a more old school office, paper, no computers. Shows doctor giving the vaccines instead of a nurse (as in 99% of offices). Shows the ORAL polio vaccine being given, which is not used at all in the USA anymore- it's a shot. Shows exam being done next to desk instead of with an examination table.

Great book for getting your preschooler ready for the doctor visit. I wish it came as a board book, though. My daughter has had us read it to her many times and she also likes finding the little duck hidden in the pages.
