Maude the Koala in: Fish Are Not Afraid of Doctors by Morris
Maud the koala knows a visit to the doctor will help keep her healthy-so why is she so scared? In this story designed to engage early readers, charming characters combine with simple text, lively illustrations, and laugh-out-loud humor to help boost kids' confidence and create lifelong readers!
Maud gets nervous waiting at the doctor's office for a checkup, so she looks to the fish tank in the waiting room for comfort. Fish don't have to go to the doctor-she wishes she could be a fish. So when Maud has to get a shot, she shuts her eyes and pretends exactly that: She becomes an aquatic version of herself and pretends to swim through the sea, blowing bubbles and meeting other marine life, until she hears the doctor telling her it's all done!
J. E. Morris's charming illustrations and comic-like panels make this a unique format with a narrative style perfect for storytime. Exciting, easy-to-read books are the stepping stone a young reader needs to bridge the gap between being a beginner and being fluent.
