"The illustrations also shed light on some of the routine practices of a check-up, and so for young readers nervous about doctor appointments, this text might just be the thing for what ails them. (Picture book. 4-7)"
"Even the novelty features—a viewfinder page and a set of photographs—cannot save this one. (Picture book. 3-6)"
