Terence is going to be a doctor today - just like his mummy. Well,
sort of. Terence's mummy is a proper doctor at the animal hospital.
Terence is just a mischievous little tapir who causes an awful
lot of chaos - in the nicest possible way. Full of warm, witty
details and deadpan humour, this hilarious trot round the wards
with the animal doctors will entertain every child who loves playing
doctors and nurses

Oh I love this book! It has served me well. Not only is it a jolly interesting read with fabulous illustrations full of little details and thus plenty to discuss; but it is on a most useful topic, especially for young children who need to visit the doctor or hospital. My two children have found much pleasure in this book and found it useful to understand what to expect when visiting a hospital. We have had plenty of role play based off this book. Dr Terence is an easy character for young children to relate to as he accompanies his doctor mother to her work. I like the gentle humour in the book, always useful when you have to read a book many many times. An excellent book for young ones and well worth getting for them.

The book is brilliant! It’s a charming story about a likeable little tapir who’s off to help his doctor Mum at work. It’s a lovely introduction to hospitals and the work doctors and nurses can do. It introduces various wards and scenarios which have led animals to the hospital. It would be a brilliant non-threatening way to prepare children for a visit or stay in hospital. I think switching out people for animals was clever: it’s given children a funny concept to focus on while they’re exploring the realities of a hospital.
I really like the way the story leads the reader around the hospital over the course of the day, involving as many members of staff who work there as possible.
The main character, little Terence, is very relatable and gets up to some harmless mischief which really made the kids laugh.
A previous reviewers described “gentle humour” and that is spot-on. It’s sweet and funny without being jarring after the 30th read!
The illustrations are really lovely; they’re bright and very detailed which served as a jumping off point for lots of discussions - even down to what sort of things are in a ward.
My children love to play doctors and nurses -usually with animals toys for patients so this story was right up their street. It’s a great book with a lovely - and very useful - story and one we revisit repeatedly.

This is such a fab book! I wish i had discovered it so much sooner. I read it to the children. They loved the story about Terrence who wanted to be a doctor like his mum. The illustrations are fantastic, there is so much to discuss. It's a great book for children learning about hospitals in a really friendly way! We all really enjoyed it!
