What to Expect When You Go to the Doctor - Heidi Murkoff
This book is great for preparing young children for their Doctor visits. If you have young ones, you know that there are many visits to the Pediatrician. I believe this book helped ease the fears of our girls when they had to go for their checkups, even when they knew they would receive shots. The book explains in basic terms all about the doctors and nurses. It explains why they look in your mouth and ears. It explains why they listen to your heart and push on your stomach. It explains the shots and much more. There is also a friendly little dog named Angus that is involved througout the book. He adds fun to the book. Kids really do learn from this book. You can start reading it to them when they are around 2 years of age. Find the best price for What to Expect When You Go to the Doctor.

Goodnight Gorilla - Peggy Rathmann
Wow. What can I say here except this one is really, really, really a must have book for pre-school children. The book tells of a gorilla and his friend mouse sneaking the keys from the zoo keeper. They let all kinds of other animals out of the zoo as well and follow the zookeeper home without him knowing. They even go to sleep in his room but then his wife hears everyone say good night and wakes up to discover the crowd of friends. There is also a neat thing about this book. From page one, a helium baloon is let go. You can always find this balloon in the sky as the book progresses. Sometimes it is very small. The book will be loved by your children for quite some time.
