A first look at healthcare and going to the doctor is explored in this Think About... title.

The Think About . . . series features humorous and insightful books about topics young kids are naturally curious about. Silly questions tickle children's funny bones; smart answers educate. This title explores why wild animals don't go to doctors, why vets care for some animals, and why only people see doctors throughout their lifetime.
