Bout of Books Progress Day 2

Bout of Books

On the second day of the Bout of Books read-a-thon, I finished five books. Three were middle grade novels:

And two were easy readers: 

(These almost don't count, they're so short, but I needed to get them read, so this seemed like as good a time as any.) 

I didn't do the challenge.

Hoping to do much more reading today! Still hoping to clear out Adobe Digital Editions by the end of the week. 

Read Around Town: The Doctor's Office

In my latest blog series, Read Around Town, I'm highlighting picture books that celebrate the people and places in a young child's immediate community. These would work well for preschool classes or homeschool groups taking tours of local businesses, or for any child interested in learning about his or her neighborhood. Today's post kicks off the series with ten picture books about doctors and doctors' offices.

This book teaches young kids how to be on their best behavior at the doctor's office by questioning what a sick dinosaur would do.

Froggy is nervous about possibly being given a shot at his doctor's appointment, but he's not prepared for the fact that he might have forgotten his underwear!

When George the dog moos and quacks instead of saying "Arf!" his mother brings him to the vet, who makes a surprising - and hilarious - discovery.

When Clementine receives a nursing kit for her birthday, she enthusiastically cures everyone in her family, except her brother, who doesn't appreciate his sister's medical skills despite his tendency to crash into things. 

Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans
Madeline, a student at a French girls' boarding school is taken ill with appendicitis, which impresses her classmates so much they also wish to become sick.
