Dylan the Doctor is such a super fun tale with a super little group of friends and not to mention a stripy dog! We really enjoyed following these pals along on their adventures!
Dylan is playing a doctor today and he wants to help everyone. All of his friends have something that needs treated and he delights in making them feel better. Until poor Titchy Chick just needs fussed over….and the others feel like just maybe they need fussed over too. Dylan is rushed off his feet and is soon worn out.
This is a gentle tale of discovery for toddlers maybe new to some of the things a doctor may do. Little Dotty Bug asks lovely little questions and comments to help involve the reader in the story. The questions are great at helping little guys relate to the story.
The illustrations are delightful and there is always plenty to look at on each page. We just adored the stripy Dylan with his many colours!
This is a wonderful start to a new series and we will definitely be looking out for more Dylan adventures!
