Hippocratic Press review

The Hippocratic Press
With the change of season so comes the colds, allergies, flu and other illness. It is never a fun time when your child is sick. If there is anything that could make our child feel better at times like this we would for sure do it. That is where Hippocratic Press comes in to practice. The fun characters help keep the little ones mind off their illness and concentrating on a story for just a short period of time.

The characters in the Hippocratic Press books suffer from illness as well. With The Moose with Loose Poops, Peeper Has a Fever, Sadie's Sore Throat, Katie Caught a Cold and The Little Elephant with the Big Earache. With the great illustrations and wonderful stories your child is bound to feel just a bit better knowing they are not the only one.

Dr. Charlotte Cowan created The Hippocratic Press. Dr. Cowan's primary mission behind the press is to create medical children's stories that entertain, educate, and reassure both parent and child. Not only does the child feel bad when they are sick but so does the parent because they never know what to do. To have a fun book that they can share together and makes them both feel better is often worth its weight in gold. One of the things that I liked allot about the Hippocratic Press books was the parents guide that each book had. The parents guide gives a bit of guidance concerning the ailment that was discussed in the book.
