Dr. Tootsie: A Young Girl's Dream

By Dr. Suzanne B. Knobel

Alexie Books

Dr. Tootsie is a cute story about a young girl who grows up on a family farm, hangs out with her Gramp, and learns about life in some unusual ways, such as the time she picked up a copperhead snake and didn't get bit!

Dr. Tootsie is a great story about how life can prepare each of us for becoming anything we want to be, including following in the footsteps of our parents. On the farm, Tootsie learned many things about farm life, including the importance of life and hard work, but it was her dad's profession that intrigued her the most—thus began her lifelong study of medicine.

I highly recommend Dr. Tootsie to preteens. It's a great book that teaches children to look outside themselves and towards helping others—whether it be animal, nature, or human.
