Dora Goes to the Doctor / Dora Goes to the Dentist Review (Random House)

What It Is

Kids get two books in one with Dora Goes to the Doctor/Dora Goes to the Dentist. When you're finished reading one book, just flip it over and read the second book. Both books are written by Ellen Rosebrough and illustrated by Bob Roper. In the middle of the book, there are more than 50 Dora stickers.

Dora Goes to the Doctor tells the story of Dora's visit with Dr. Lopez. It points out all the different instruments the doctor uses and what they are for. Dora Goes to the Dentist tells the story of Dora's visit to the dentist. First, the dental assistant takes X-rays of Dora's teeth. Then, the dentist arrives and uses special tools to make sure Dora's teeth are healthy and clean. The dentist finds a cavity, and Dora gets a filling.

Is It Fun?

Kids who might be scared of going to the doctor or the dentist might find the courage they need after reading about Dora's visits. The book explains in an age-appropriate way about the different tools both doctors use and why visiting them is so important: to stay healthy and have a clean smile. Kids who like Dora will like reading about both of Dora's adventures.
