Big Bad Wolf and Itsy Bitsy Spider by Dosh Archer - ESSENTIAL

Archer, Dosh. Big Bad Wolf and Itsy Bitsy Spider (Urgency Emergency series). Unpaged. 2013. Albert Whitman & Company. $12.99 each. Early Readers.

Doctor Glenda and Nurse Percy work at City Hospital. When the ambulance arrives, they must work together to help their patient, whoever it may be. In Big Bad Wolf, Nurse Percy is comforting a small crying girl wearing a red cape when the ambulance brings in a choking wolf. In Itsy Bitsy Spider, the ambulance brings in a spider on a rainy day, accompanied by Miss Muffet who found the spider in a puddle at the bottom of a waterspout and decided to help, even though she is deathly afraid of spiders.

Using characters that young readers will be familiar with in a hospital setting is both clever and witty. These are strong additions for any Early Readers collection.
