Mr. J's Review
My students loved this book. It was quirky and mildly old-fashioned and at times downright funny. Some of the content (especially dealing with race relations) and vocabulary used was antiquated.
Doctor John Dolittle loves animals. He loves them so much that his home and office overflow with animals of every description. When Polynesia the parrot teaches him the language of the animals, Doctor Dolittle becomes a world-famous doctor, traveling even as far away as Africa to help his friends. Goodreads.com
