Barbie takes her dog to the vet, but the vet is so overwhelmed by patients that she enlists Barbie's help. Although Barbie appears to be a stripper or perhaps a Vegas showgirl, she manages the animals okay.

While I am not a fan of the Barbie series books (not much of a plot, dialogue, weak characters...) my preschooler loves them mainly I believe due to the vivid illustrations and glamorous Barbie fashion and accessories. 1 Star from Mom, 5 from the kid, so we split the difference to 3 stars.

I read a bunch of books to my daughter today. I love using my local libraries online borrow system, it's so simple to use. Victoria loved this book (age 4). She was able to follow along, she even guessed a couple words. The pictures were very well done and they went with the story perfectly.

Too many pets. Too much Barbie.

This is a great level 1 reading book. Simple site words that are easily to read, while telling a basic story while keeping the kids focused

Barbie goes to the vet with her dog and then starts to help the vet with all of the animals that come in after. It's a great beginner reading book with a can do message.

This book is about a Barbie who came to the vet with her puppy, and the puppy was okay, and then Barbie became a vet too and she helped all the animals. She helped a cat, she helped a horse, she helped dogs, and she helped a birdie and a bunny. At the end, they all shouted "Hooray for Barbie!"

My favorite part was the picture where there was a Barbie who came with her cats to the vet, but the cats weren't in the box, so they searched for the cats. A dog found cats in a flower pot, the Barbie foun

In this easy reader Barbie takes her pets to the vet but instead ends up helping out because the vet is overwhelmed. It shows different animals the vet takes care of, not just dogs and cats. Barbie is still barbie but now with a labcoat. Little girls who love barbie and animals will love this one. Focuses on short vowel words.

This Barbie book has two to four words per pages which makes this a great beginners books. It is simply about Barbie being a vet for a day. It is geared towards ages 4-6 years old. I would give to one of my students if they were a reluctant readers. It has basically no plot line however, which is something I did not like.

Barbie takes her puppy, Lacey, to the vet....then, suddenly decides (after only having watched the vet check Lacey once!) that she can do the vet's job! Barbie doesn't end up doing much, but she helps the vet a little bit.

Ughhhhhh, Barbie, you try to hard to be all useful and empowered and everything, but you FAIL. Barbie helps out her vet pal who's totally overwhelmed by lots and lots of animal patients. A white coat and POOF she's a labtech.

This book is for preschool and Kindergarten-level readers, but older children who like Barbie may also enjoy reading this book.

Good read. Love the Barbie: I Can Be series because it's inspirational and motivates kids to become whatever they want to when they grow up.
