The little girl in the story is at the doctor to find out what is wrong with her. She feels many things are wrong and she tells Doctor White that she has a puppy dog in her ears, purple polka dots on her skin, and she is growing a fish fin. Her tummy feels lumpy and her elbows are bumpy, her hands stink and her hair is turning pink. Her nose has been itchy and lips have been twitchy, and she thinks she is really sick. There are many other things too the little girl feels that makes her sure she is not well. Doctor White thinks otherwise and that the little girl is perfectly fine.
Baby Silly Sickies by Becky Carlyle is an engaging story that gives confidence to children to speak while visiting a doctor. Watching the little girl talk to the doctor about how she is feeling is good encouragement to young readers to feel free and confident to speak to their doctor while visiting them for a check-up. Chiara Civati's adorable and charming illustrations breathe life into the characters and help children understand the author's words better. The rhyming words give the story a good pace and movement, and rhythm and melody. It is a charming book for parents and tutors to use for storytelling sessions at homes and classrooms, and since it is written from a little girl's perspective, it will help reduce youngsters' fears of going to the doctor in an engaging and interesting way.
