I was delighted to see these 5 books in the mail the other day. It is the Dr.Hippo book series, by Dr. Charlotte Cowan, for kids and parents, on how to deal with the common illnesses kids go through.

On the whole, I really enjoyed reading all the books with my kids. The illustrations were very richly colorful and appealed to my kids. Strangely enough, none of my kids haven’t gone through an earache yet (touches wood), so they couldn’t relate to that. But, they all know how it feels to feel pain, discomfort and tiredness during an illness.

Each book is about different characters and their different ailments. There is a Moose with Loose Poops, a cute Frog with a Fever, a little Elephant with an Earache, a Polar Bear with a Cold and a Giraffe with a Sore Throat.

I love how she subtly matched each ailment with the animals. Just too cute! I also love how she converts fahrenheit to celcius (for non-US readers), thank you for thinking of us!

At the back, there is a separate laminated Parent’s Guide, that helps the parent (yes, you and me), with identifying the type of illnesses and the severity of it. It provides tips and guidelines on how to handle a mild-moderate fever, sore throats, earaches,  and how we should never let our kids take the cough/cold medication. Also, it gives a guideline to parents on when to contact their child’s doctor. I found it to be really informative and was very glad to have this at hand. I often have no idea when I should see the doctor… especially when my kids get a rash after a bout of fever! Rashes make me nervous. 😉
