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.
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.

After I read the book to my child a few times, he handled his next visit to the doctor noticeably better than in the past.Published on January 26, 2003
