The Lovereading4Kids comment

Handsomely presented and full of information, this is an excellent book for any young person interested in a career in medicine. It’s divided into three sections: People Skills – described as the most important part of any doctor’s work; General Practice, full of information on the body, the special terms and language doctors use, and ways diagnoses are made; Surgeon, which describes what goes on in a hospital, with detailed looks at X-rays and keeping germs at bay. ‘Students’ of the academy learn by completing sets of activities and there are interactive tests throughout as well as practical activities like wrapping a sprained wrist, or identifying bones on an X-ray. Once each section is complete, children add a sticker before graduating to the next task. Added extras include a press-out model of a skeleton. ~ Andrea Reece
