We all know how intimidating a doctor visit can be for a child. As both a parent and Certified Child Life Specialist, I use books to help prepare kids for an unfamiliar experience.
Lola Goes to the Doctor is a beautifully written children’s book about a little Yorkshire Terrier, that is nervous for a checkup, but discovers that she is a much braver, big dog than she thought.
The story has captivating photographs of Lola meeting other friendly pets in the waiting room, having an exam by the doctor and overcoming her fears.
The author, Marcia Goldman is an educator in special education and has spent the past 25 years focusing on autism. Lola is her beloved certified therapy dog that visits children in the classrooms. She is also the author of Lola Goes to Work: A Nine-to-Five Therapy Dog.
