Too hot for spots by Mini Goss

cover image

Allen and Unwin, 2014. ISBN 9781743435410.
Recommended for children aged 3+. Too Hot for Spots is a lovely picture book with bright, real life photos to help tell the story.
Barry and Stella are dogs and in this story they are taking turns to be the doctor or the patient. The story is told through a conversation between the two characters and will be a great book for parents to read with their children. The images have all the tools a doctor needs and are great discussion points. It would also be a good story to use during oral language in a reception class.
