If you don’t already know the the smart and adorable Doc McStuffins, the Disney Channel animated show about a little girl Dottie who wants to be a doctor like her mom, the little ones in your life are missing a real treat. The Disney cartoon features a host of stuffed animals upon which Dottie gets to operate and cure. Loretta Devine is the voice of The Hippo and Gary Anthony Williams, who plays Uncle Ruckus on the Boondocks is the voice of Dottie’s dad, Mr. McStuffins. What the book is missing in voice and animation, it makes up for in imagination. They have recreated that world in this book, where the brilliant 6-year-old Dottie heals her broken toys, and inspires other little minds to perhaps want to pursue medicine when they grow up.
