Does your child have sick stuffed animals at home? More to the point, do you have a pretend-play enthusiast, budding veterinarian, or craft lover at home? If so, Teddy Bear Doctor offers a wide variety of craft and play activities, from directions for making veterinary costumes and props, to instructions for creating exam rooms, to stickers to reward the stuffies after they survive their pretend shots. The back half of the book is devoted to tear-off templates, patterns, stencils, and stickers to aid in the process of making the various costume items. This is a boon for non-crafty grownups (such as this reviewer), and allows children to do some of the craft projects fairly independently.
