PreS Small children will enjoy the guessing game format of A Trip to the Doctor. On the title page, Joey and his mother sit in the waiting room; the following two-page spreads take them step-by-step through a routine checkup. Left-hand pages ask two questions. The first is intended to be answered by studying the facing illustration, the second by making the appropriate choice among three objects pictured below the text. Unfolding the right-hand page reveals the correct answer and shows Joey in the various stages of his examination. Pleasant watercolor and crayon illustrations show smiles on every faceeven Joey's as he's getting a shot. The minimal information here is aimed at children just becoming aware of the checkup routine; it will help first-timers learn what to expect and give older toddlers an opportunity to relive the experience in a reassuring way. Preschoolers and older children will find A Doctor's Tools (Dodd, 1985) by Kenny DeSantis more interesting and informative, while Helen Oxenbury's The Checkup (Dial, 1983) provides a less serious look at the situation for all age groups.
