Dr. Witch's Animal Hospital
Dr. Witch's Animal Hospital
Audience: 2nd Grade - 3rd Grade
Doctor Witch uses her magic to heal animals. She receives an invitation to a ball, but she encounters multiple animals in need of help on her way there. She arrives at the ball in a mess, and the wizard in charge won't let her join the festivities. Will she find a way into the ball? Young people fond of fairy tales featuring princesses may like this tale, which focuses on the witch's healing talents, but also takes some detours to highlight her joy in dressing up for a fancy party. This story would make a great selection for students too advanced for most beginning readers but not yet ready for full chapter books. (Reading Level: 3.3)
