Zeki Gets a Checkup
Publisher: Alanna Books
Zeki is a big boy now – he loves hiding toys, playing ball, singing and dancing. Today, he’s going for a checkup at the doctors’ with Daddy and Mister Seahorse, who he plays with while he and Daddy wait their turn in the clinic.
Zeki gets measured, weighed and his eyes and ears are tested; then he gets an injection to keep him healthy. Finally, Zeki gets a sticker and a book for being such a good boy.
This new addition to the inclusive Zeki series mark developmental milestones for toddlers of Zeki’s age, such as drinking and eating independently. It is an ideal book to share with little ones of the same age, whether by parents, carers, nurseries or health practitioners.
