Today I'm a Veterinarian

Children's Book and Media Review, Sep 2018

Today I'm a Veterinarian is one of a series of books that details interesting careers. Young readers can learn about different occupations as they are entertained and entranced by the colorful illustrations and bright, cheerful pictures. In this particular book, Dr. Emma is a veterinarian who is sharing a little bit about what she does at work every day. One unique thing about this book is that it doubles as a story and a picture book. There are many pages of pictures with text underneath to enhance a child's vocabulary and teach them words that they may not have heard before.

There are many pages of pictures with text underneath to enhance a child’s vocabulary and teach them words that they may not have heard before. This book does a great job of explaining what a veterinarian does so that young readers can understand and yet be challenged as they learn specific and accurate veterinary terms. The board book is very sturdy for little, curious hands and it is shaped as Dr. Emma, the veterinarian. It is also a great book for interactive learning with parents or teachers. Children will love to point out and name the different animals and “doctor” items throughout the pages. Preschoolers and toddlers will smile freely as they are transported into the world of Dr. Emma. Books like this one are so important as they cover important jobs and may even plant the seed for a future career in a young reader. There is no age limit on inspiration!
