a child's review
I read "Taeh goes to the Vet" by Wendy Healy-Hindmarch to my 8 year old. Honestly she didn't make it all the way through. To be fair, it was a PDF version that I received, and she doesn't like digital books as a rule. She said it was ok, but too long. I don't know that it was too long, she's read longer, but it was very 'wordy'. The story has great pictures and tells about a dalmatian named Taeh that has allergies and goes to the vet. The author goes into the allergies quite a bit. Maybe it should have been a generic visit to the vet, like kennel cough and rabies vaccines; that would cut out the allergy part making it shorter. Not a classic, but if your kid is getting ready to take an animal to the vet for the first time, it would be a decent read. I received this book for free from www.librarything.com.
