Katz, Alan. Let’s Get a Checkup! Illustrated by Pascal Lemaitre. Little Simon, 2010. $7.99 Content: G. BOARD BOOK. A waiting room full of animals is hesitant to visit the doctor and they all protest when it is their turn. After finding the doctor crying from hurt feelings, a young Dachshund decides to get his checkup. The checkup is relatively painless and he receives a sticker for his efforts. The sticker is noticed by the other animals, so they all rush to have their checkups. Although the story is a valid tale explaining children’s fears, the attempts to make it rhyming only make it confusing. The mediocre graphics also don’t draw the reader in. PreK – OPTIONAL. Reviewer: C. Peterson, teacher.
