Does a hippo go to the doctor? Does a cat? Do you? Let\'s think about it! Each title in the 12-book Think About... series opens with a helpful letter to parents explaining ways to use the material in the books with their kids. Does a Hippo Go to the Doctor? explores and explains why animals in the wild don\'t go to doctors, that some animals can be cared for by vets--but only people use professional medical services throughout their lifetime. A funny, kid-like question (\"Does a hippo go to the doctor?\") is shown with a silly scenario (a hippo on an exam table), and thoughts and facts about why that animal\'s behavior and lifestyle aren\'t compatible with medical services. Animals that might use some medical care are then featured, which leads into an exploration of how humans take care of their health and bodies. A final spread offers activities that further extend a child\'s grasp of the featured topic. Humorous, entertaining, smart: Highly-praised for engaging kids with a spot-on mix of silly and smart. An insightful range of topics: From health to teeth care to facial expressions and tech-communication--by contrasting the behavior of people and animals, the series helps young children understand what makes humans, and themselves, unique. Common Core Compatible: Exactly on-point with the Common Core\'s emphasis on compare-and-contrast; includes activities and discussion points that extend each topic\'s range and application. \"[Offers] a reassuring [and] humorous approach to child-development issues...Parents and children will both appreciate these small-format picture books.\" --SLJ
