Recently, we received the newest DVD in the Doc McStuffins line, "School of Medicine", to check out for ourselves. This DVD was so cute, and Doc McStuffins took on various medical roles. She was an optometrist helping her owl, Professor Hootsburgh, see clearly again, and also came to the rescue as a radiologist and a dentist. The thing I love the most about this series is that it teaches small kids about medicine in a way they can understand. What a great way to possibly help kids find their calling, don't you agree? And of course, this DVD also teaches about empathy and compassion, which are very important values to have, in my opinion.
In "Doc McStuffins: School of Medicine,” a compilation of engaging Doc McStuffins stories, the many specialties in which doctors practice medicine and health care are highlighted for young kids to comprehend. In her playhouse clinic, Doc is an optometrist, helping her stuffed owl toy, Professor Hoostburgh, to see clearly again. As a dentist, she fixes a tooth on Donny’s toy shark Mr. Chomp and, as a radiologist, Doc takes an inside look at Daisy’s arm after a Roller Disco fall. Then, Doc accidentally sprains her own ankle, so it’s up to her toys to provide the care and compassion to Doc herself and with rest, patience and plenty of cuddles, she will be as good as new, singing “The Doc is in.”
