I Can Read Level 1

I Want to Be a Doctor

illustrated by Catalina Echeverri

About the Book

For the child who says, "I want to be a doctor when I grow up!" And for any child who wants a gentle behind-the-scenes look at being a doctor.

Doctors help sick and hurt people feel better. When little brother Jack hurts his foot, the family gets to meet all kinds of doctors.

With this story blending narrative with nonfiction elements, readers meet the doctors who heal broken bones, help fix teeth, and even work in laboratories!

I Want to Be a Doctor is part of a new I Can Read series that introduces young readers to important community helpers. This Level One I Can Read is perfect for children learning to sound out words and sentences.

Critical Praise

Jaunty, stylized illustrations support the story’s upbeat tone. From patients and visitors to staff, character portrayal is diverse in terms of race, age, and body type. An informative beginning-reader story from the I Can Read! series. —Booklist

The illustrations are expressive, colorful and seem to flow through the different parts of the hospital... VERDICT: A solid addition prescribed for all beginning reader and community helper collections. —School Library Journal
