About the Book

Doctor Marsha is a series created to entertain children at the preschool through grade school level relying on educational content. The main character, Marsha, will introduce kids to exciting challenges in basic health education as the series explores the world, vanquishing health problems. It is my hope that the characters will stimulate young minds by introducing them to a positive, professional figure that embodies the spirit of cultural competence, creativity, and adventure.


My Review

Cute, Educational Story for Kids. The author adds in many educational tidbits of information for little ones as her Australian characters visit Washington D.C. in the U.S to help solve a 4th of July mystery. From learning a bit about animals to some U.S. history and nutrition--young readers are introduced to a lot of information in the book.  


Fun Family Read-Along. While little ones will enjoy the colorful book and its fun characters and illustrations, the reading level and rhyme flow are probably more suited to older readers or used in a classroom or family storytime.  


Would I Recommend Dr. Marsha and the Case of the Missing Hot Dogs and Marshmallows by Dr. Rachel Wellner? This book is a cute story introducing children to mysteries, junk food vs. healthy food choices, and some quick facts about the U.S. and Australia--without seeming educational. It is an adorable addition to add to your 4th of July themed book collection--and it introduces readers to a preschool-friendly mystery series with Dr. Marsha.
