A Visit to Dr. Duck

By Rosemary Wells
Illustrated by Rosemary Wells

“Wells visualizes the introductory visit-to-the-doctor reassurance with her characteristic spirited charm.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review)

Best-selling author and illustrator Rosemary Wells applies her rare ability to tell a funny, heartfelt story about a common childhood experience: going to the doctor. Comforting and friendly, Dr. Duck — whom readers first met in Here Comes Mother Goose — takes a star turn in A Visit to Dr. Duck. Rosemary Wells’s inimitable artwork will delight small children and reassure even the most reluctant young patient.

  • One of the most perfect picture books ever made by one of the U.S.'s most beloved illustrators has been reformatted for a younger audience, and given a new jacket and title to more clearly announce the content.
  • A few basic healthy habits are listed on the last page of the book in a friendly, upbeat tone.
  • A jolly message promoting healthy habits, delivered at a time when national concern over children's health and a trend toward obesity are on the rise.
