Synopsis

Richard the Vet by Mairi McLellan

Richard the Vet is the fifth 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. Richard is a large animal vet. Specialised in equine (horses), he spends most of his time between farms and stables. His hours are long but he loves his job. On their adventure, the children learn how Richard helps farmers to manage their prize bulls, how horses' teeth never stop growing, how to remove rotten teeth and how to avoid getting kicked! Other books in the series include: Joe the Fisherman, Papa the Stockfarmer, Sean the Actor and Fiona the Doctor. Coming soon, Gordon the Wildlife Filmmaker.

Reviews

This series is a great way of demystifying the grown-ups

-- Primary Times What Sprouts loves about these books is how they do not dictate to the young reader. Instead, they allow young minds to explore ideas through children's questions. Quite simply they're fantastic educational books that won't fail to fascinate and entertain all readers! -- Sprouts
