Lit Rabbit Goes Dr.

John P. Miller, Author, J. P. Miller, Author Random House Books for Young Readers $3.95 (20p) ISBN 978-0-394-87991-8
One of the Tough Enough for Toddlers titles, this sturdy book offers readers a healthy dose of information about visiting the doctor. Little Rabbit comes home from school with both ears and tail dragging; he's tired and one ear really hurts. He and his mother walk to Dr. O'Hare's office, where an examination and diagnosis follow. Then Little Rabbit is sent home to recover with a red lollipop and some purple medicine. This is a functional story, drily told, and page after page shows Little Rabbit in almost identical poses, which dulls the impact of the pictures. Still, his distress is real, and his story provides readers with a good opportunity to learn more about a potentially frightening experience. Ages 2-5. (June)
