Item description for Does a Hippo Say Ahh? by Fred Ehrlich...
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.

Great Books for Kids Who Fear the Doctor Feb 13, 2008
This is a simply written book that introduces young children to the procedures that take place during a doctors visit, and stresses the importance of going to the doctor regularly. It explains the doctors office in a straightforward manner (i.e. admitting that getting shots WILL hurt a bit) so kids won't feel tricked, but it also shows the positive outcomes of such procedures (a girl picking out a sticker as a reward after her shot). Cute and honest, while hopefully making trips to the doctors less daunting for little ones!
