Itsy Bitsy Spider

 

This new early reader series, Urgency Emergency, tackles expert medical care mixed with characters from nursery rhymes and fairy tales.  In Itsy Bitsy Spider, a scared Miss Muffet brings in an injured spider who needs stitches for a cut on his forehead.  Doctor Glenda, Nurse Percy, and the Pengamedics do a superb job showing the different parts of an ER exam followed by treatment of the cut.  In Big Bad Wolf, a choking wolf is brought in, and Doctor Glenda and Nurse Percy perform an exam and treat the wolf, while managing to ensure that the police arrive in time to take him away.  Let's hope more Urgency Emergency books are forthcoming!
