Dr. Rosie Helps the Animals Interactive Reading and Hands-On Science Program

Do animals get earaches? 

Sore throats? Stomach aches?

Who helps them if they can’t talk? 

Meet the author and illustrator of Dr. Rosie Helps the Animals, an award-winning STEM picture book based on and informed by real-world veterinarians. Jennifer, the author, and Rozillia, the illustrator, will first tell the story behind the story of Dr. Rosie and then engage kids in an interactive reading. 

Following the reading will be a hands-on activity where kids (and their grownups) diagnose and treat a stuffy. Each participant will receive a mini vet kit and diagnostic/treatment sheet to take home. Alternatively, Jennifer and Rozillia can lead kids through hands-on experiments related to the book. 

What Else? 

Kids should bring their own stuffy. Mini stuffed animals will be provided for any kid who needs one. There will be a limit of 30 kits. More than 30 kids can attend, but kits are limited. This program is ideal for young people ages 4-8. Signed copies of the book will be available for purchase. Proceeds are directed to a veterinary scholarship fund.

Attendance is limited to 30; admission will be on a first come/first served basis.

We offer this program in honor of National Pet Month, May 2024.

This event is generously sponsored by the Brookline Library Foundation.
