Review: Lola Goes to the Doctor

September 27, 2014

Lola Goes to the Doctor

Lola is back and it’s time for her to go to the doctor for a check-up.  She admits she’s scared but reminds herself that she’s a big dog.  Her doctor is kind and gentle and the procedures don’t hurt until it’s time for her shot.  Lola admits it stings a little bit and reminds herself she can handle it.

I adored Lola Goes to the Doctor by Marcia Goldman and think it’s the perfect book for any youngster who’s anxious about visiting the doctor.  Lola’s story is told with honesty and humor.  She admits she’s nervous and admits the shot hurts.  She’s also curious about the other animals in the waiting room and  wonders how the snake and the goldfish get their shots.

Lola on the scales

Both parents and kids will love the adorable photos in this picture book.  They do a wonderful job of capturing Lola’s emotions and are sure to keep youngsters engaged in her story.  I wish Lola Goes to the Doctor had been around when Vance was small!

    Lola is soo cute and this book is such a good idea to teach little ones about going to the doctor!

    Sweet concept. Of course, my daughter would cry if she knew Lola had to go to the doctor. LOL. She is such a softie when it comes to animals.

    This looks so cute. I want to share it with my three-year-old right now. She’s be delighted to see that puppies visit the doctor and get nervous about shots too!
