Panda Pediatrician is a children's book written by Hilary Smith and illustrated by Vova Kirichenko. Celebrations for the children's 100th day of school have arrived. The children discuss the massive planning of this special day, from decorations and supplies to catering and invitations. All of the students are so very excited. Connie Crane, Arnold Alligator, Tim Tiger, and Mitchell Monkey discuss how each of their parents has contributed, but Preston and Penelope Panda are sad. Their mama was too busy to make food or contribute to decorations as she was delivering and treating babies and children who needed her help. But when a guest speaker turns out to be none other than their own mother, Dr. Panda gets to answer all of the children's questions about being a doctor for children.

Panda Pediatrician is one of these rare stories that left me smiling when I closed the book. It tells of the many various and vital roles that a pediatrician brings to each and every community. While children may fear going to the doctor, they quickly learn of the valued tasks it takes to be a children's doctor. Whether it is checking for symptoms of illness, treating injuries incurred on any given day, or nursing a patient back to health, regardless of the time of day, Dr. Panda is always there to soothe what ails you. I very much enjoyed reading Hilary Smith's tale of Panda Pediatrician and about the many tasks required of a pediatrician. I feel that readers aged from 4-12 will benefit from this wonderful book. Panda Pediatrician is an absolute must for any home library so that children learn to understand why visiting the doctor and being healthy is so vitally important.
