In this book, kids will learn all about different kinds of small and large animal vets and all about their roles in animals lives. There are many great facts and much education about what a vet does. The book also has fact sheets about vets and their role with animals with many great photos of many types of animals. The book also features The Veterinarian Oath that Vets pledge to themselves, their profession and to the animals they treat. Like the other books in this book series that I have reviewed on bookroomreviews.com, I was very impressed with this book and with the great format and layout of this book! I liked how there are side fact sheets about the different roles that vet plays talked about the different vet types and how the book had many pictures of animals and vets! Besides the cute storyline, the book is a great educational tool for kids to learn about the role of what vets do. This book as well as the other When I Grow up I Want to Be… books are great for teachers to use in their classrooms to educate kids about the many different careers that kids can choose from when they grow up! This book and the other books talks about character traits, skills and education of how one becomes a Vet, Teacher and so forth…. I highly recommend this book!
