I like the
way the author has handled the entire process of taking careof Charles
from the time he has fallen till he returns to the park withFelix. She
explains the procedures clearly and in a very methodical wayto young
readers. The quiz at the end of the book is fun. Theillustrations are
charming and they bring the characters, scenes, andconcept alive to
readers. The author's experience as a doctor has beenput to good use
through this book. It is a lovely book to have in one'spersonal
collection at home as it can be read out to children many times to make
them understand what needs to be done in situations like this,when there
is a fall and an arm is broken. Educators and tutors can useit in
classrooms and school libraries to help children understand theconcept.
