Review

The vocabulary is well-pitched to young children, the illustrations are simple but with enough detail to interest. Veterinary equipment is the focus of a neat glossary at the back of the book, and the consistent use of medical green clearly marks this title' s place in the wider Busy People series.

Perfect for an ' Animals' or ' People Who Help Us' topic, this book takes you through a day in the life of a vet. It is a busy day for Mike the vet, with plenty of animals to see and make well on the farm. Children will love seeing what he gets up to and how he helps the animals, and they will begin to understand that there are people who help us everywhere.
