Synopsis

Fiona the Doctor by Mairi McLellan

Fiona the Doctor is the fourth book of the series 'What do the grown-ups do?' Based in the Northwest Highlands of Scotland, the series aims to teach children aged 5-10 years about different jobs. By writing through the eyes of the children, the tone is kept chatty and light-hearted as three local children meet real workers who explain their jobs. Fiona the doctor shows the Mackenzie children the equipment in the doctor's bag used to help diagnose a patient's problem: the stethoscope, the otoscope, the oximeter - a doctor's life is full of long words! They learn about the differences between blood pressure and pulse, systolic and diastolic, GPs and specialists, and even why people get smelly feet! They also learn that doctors have their own jokes! Other books in the series include: Joe the Fisherman, Papa the Stockfarmer, Sean the Actor and Richard the Vet. Coming soon, Gordon the Wildlife Filmmaker.

-- Pocketful of Rye What makes these books noteworthy are the practical details from the mouths of the real workers, which fascinate rather than bore. It's eye-opening stuff. -- Teach Primary
