After hearing a recommendation from a family member about this book, I thought I’d try it on my almost 2 year old before her 24 month doctor visit. We read it 2 days before her visit and it made a significant impact! We even brought it to her appointment and read it while we were waiting. She was so excited to get her heartbeat checked, her temperature taken, and to lie down on the bed. She was able to get through her appointment without freaking out and even handled a finger prick blood test without a budge or a tear! Now.. side note, she did end up crying when she got her vaccinations, but the big difference was she only cried after the shot and not before and through the whole process. Her apparent fear of her doctor’s visit was not an issue anymore and that was my main concern.
Some things I liked:
1. Includes usual parts of a routine doctor visit. (Waiting room, stethoscope check, weigh-in, measuring height, etc)
-This is so helpful because it’s relatable and helps your child anticipate their own appointment!
2. Overcoming shots
-This is gold right here. The main reason I bought this book was to show my daughter that shots are quick and she’ll be ok once she’s done.
-great incentive for your child when they have a doctor’s appt!
My son was not okay with the doctors/nurses after his last flu shot in October. Since then, he turned 3 and wellness visits were no longer a simple trip for us. Just talking about the doctor, shots even taking medicine...he wasn't haven't and thought so negative of it all. He was a mess the whole visit, super scared! Luckily, this book turned most of that negativity around. So simple, he loves reading books before bed and this quickly became a favorite. He tells me, "Mommy. Not scary. Doctor not scary".
So we got him the Berenstain Bears book about doctor visits (which does talk about shots), the Celebrate! Doctor book (we adore the art, but it doesn't talk about shots) and the basic set of Fisher Price doctor tools and a lab coat, which fits quite well and will for awhile,
So far he still cries, but when he comes home he wants the books read and then plays with the doctors set while wearing the coat
So he is processing, which is great ^_^
All in all, very pleased
It would have been great if they had gone into some detail regarding different medical instruments or what caused father bear to become sick aka discuss what viruses are and what to do about it. It is just very generic and a story book from a different generation. It was fine but, my son has never asked for it to be read to him since the original reading. It is just kind of bland.
