Important moments in childhood are depicted lightly, but effectively, in a funny question-and-answer format. Does a hippo go to the doctor? Does a zebra? Everything young readers need to know to prepare for a checkup with their doctors is laid out humorously and realistically. Comparing and contrasting such outrageously silly moments as a hippo and a child saying ahhhh, the author and artist effectively capture important moments of childhood and lay the groundwork for dealing with new experiences. With a friendly and funny question-and-answer format that compares people and animals, this book provides the perfect vehicle for introducing children to experiences they all encounter as they grow and develop. Fred Ehrlich\\\'s exaggerated humor leads perfectly to the fact that these are functions each child needs to master. This collection counting 14 titles and addressed to preschool children, provided a humorous approach to child-development issues such as bathing, sleeping in one\'s own bed, etc. using sparse text and animal behavior as a launching pad.
