Or at least hug your kids and share this title which explores what to expect at the doctor’s office and the work that doctors do to help us stay healthy.

Told from the girl’s perpective and then the beast’s, A Tale of Two Beasts depicts what happens when a little girl rescues a strange beast from the woods. This wonderfully entertaining tale introduces children to the idea that every story has two sides and it’s important to consider the other side too. This is fantastic for reading aloud and for reading in groups as well.
