Animal Doctors: Incredible Ways Animals Heal Themselves by Angie Trius & Mark Doran, Illustrated by Julio Antonio Blasco

Did you know that animals use plants and different elements from their environment as medicine similar to the way people do? I learned that African Elephants eat leaves of the red seringa tree to induce birth, Rhinos take mud baths to protect their skin from sunburn and insect bites and Monarch Butterflies lay their eggs on Milkweed plants to protect their caterpillars from parasites. This fun interactive book contains fold-outs containing animal characteristics, an animal prescription and info about each remedy. This unique fact book makes a great gift for animal lovers and aspiring young doctors! Ages 7-11
