A book for the youngest child (18 months +) about what to expect when going for a checkup. This is a family where Daddy takes a major role, and it is he who is to take Zeki to see the doctor while Mum is at home or at work. It is also Dad who talks to Zeki about what a big boy he is now – he can drink from a cup and eats by himself and he sings and dances, and now he is going to have a checkup. We see Zeki and Dad waiting in the waiting room with all the other parents and children; we then see him being weighed and measured and having eyes and ears looked at and his heart listened to. All is well, so he then must have a jab ‘to keep him healthy’, and as he smiles even through this process, he seems to have been very well prepared for the procedure! A warm and happy picture book that shows us a loving black family experiencing a normal everyday happening in the life of any family with young children. While a paperback, the paper is very strong, and the fact that the corners are rounded will make it difficult for young children to poke themselves or others in the eye. An excellent book for families and for surgery waiting rooms – good for toddler groups as well.
