Childrens Audio Book Review: Doctor De Soto by William Steig

"Doctor De Soto, the dentist, did very good work." With the aid of his able assistant, Mrs. De Soto, he copes with the toothaches of animals large and small. His expertise is so great that his fortunate patients never feel any pain.
Since he's a mouse, Doctor De Soto refuses to treat "dangerous" animals--that is, animals who have a taste for mice. But one day a fox shows up and begs for relief from the tooth that's killing him. How can the kindhearted De Sotos turn him away? But how can they make sure that the fox doesn't give in to his baser instincts once his tooth is fixed? Those clever De Sotos will find a way.
This is another great story by William Steig! This book is also a Newberry Honor book! The storyline is well written and well executed! It is easy to follow and easy to understand. It is intended for ages 3-8 but can definitely be enjoyed by older children. The characters in the book are well put together. The illustrations are well done and rich and vibrant in color. The narrator is Stanley Tucci and he does a very good job with the story. He is easy to listen to! I recommend this book to anyone with children especially beginner readers. Its a great reading teaching tool. I Highly recommend for anyone looking for a cute story for their children!
