This "mini-veterinarian school journey" for kids offers a wondrous array of fun and exciting props and activities through which children explore the world of veterinarian medicine, science, health and pet care taking. The workbook engages little veterinarians with activities that are as fun as they are enlightening: adopting, naming, and learning about a dog, learning about healthy snacks dogs can eat, measuring the chest size perimeter and front leg length of the dog, performing a ‘Nose to Tail Exam,’ doing a tick check and removing tick stickers from the dog, and both an introductory and graduation ceremony. My Little Veterinarian Kit promotes social development, cooperation, teamwork, creativity and problem-solving, among other skills. For ages 5+.
What Makes it Hot Diggity Great:
Little Medical School's line of medical kits are so clever and combine imaginative play with education seamlessly. The company doesn't underestimate children's ability to learn about real medical procedures, anatomy and patient care and each kit lays everything out in a fun and innovative way. The included doctor's coat is really well made, unlike many children's costumes on the market! My Little Veterinarian Kit teaches kids about the basic vet check up and what to look for in a healthy puppy. The kits is packed with materials, but the real value is in the lesson book that explains pet care.
