7 x 10 inches


Going to the doctor is part of every young child’s life.  And, in order to prepare a toddler for the experience, nothing is more helpful than a picture book like I Go to the Doctor.

The entire series of events is described in simple rhymes, from waiting in the waiting room, to being weighed and measured, to the actual exam.

To demystify items that a child might find scary and unfamiliar, instruments like stethoscope and otoscope are clearly illustrated.

Most importantly, I Go to the Doctor presents the (proper Jewish attitude) (the Torah attitude) toward healing, namely: that doctors, nurses and medicine may do their part, but only Hashem can make someone get well!

A warm and cozy book to familiarize young children with a visit to the doctor.  Every child will be glad to know that Hashem is the One who really makes people get well!

I was born in Israel but grew up in Brooklyn and attended Sora Schenirer High School in Boro Park. I am Married and have children and grandchildren, BH. I have always had an interest in book illustrations and enjoyed writing short stories and poems. I especially enjoy and relate well to young children and find that they have a real love and appreciation for books and pick up a lot of information from the illustrations as well. I get pleasure out of knowing how much children learn and pick up from my books.
