Dr. Rabbit Reviews
I have always loved reading missionary stories, especially ones by Eric B. Hare, aka "Doctor Rabbit." But this one is especially endearing.It tells about how he originally came to become a doctor in the jungles of Burma for the Karen people, how he felt while he worked there, and his victories and losses. His repetetive use of the phrase, "Don't you know? Haven't you heard? Hasn't anyone ever told you?" (though used more in his book Treasure From The Haunted Pagoda) shows his humor in superstitious situations, and his light-heartedness has us switching from tears to tears of laughter every ten minutes.Over all, this is my favorite Eric B. Hare book as of yet.
"Don't you know? Haven't you heard? Hasn't anyone ever told you?" Pioneer medical missionary, "Dr. Rabbit," tells of his work among the Karen people of Burma.
I read this book with my fifth and sixth graders. It's a short book, but they LOVED the stories in it! They didn't want the book to end. I think they loved the stories because the setting is in a faraway land and many of the stories are gross... people getting attacked by elephants, people getting attacked by drug addicts, people (including a baby elephant) with oozing infections, splinters in eyes, maggots in wounds... They were delightfully grossed out and they loved it!
an excellent book for kids about missionaries. a wonderful favorite line often repeated throughout the book shares the purpose gained through missionary work, "We've finally found out special little place."
Very good book, Eric B hare was one of my favorite story tellers when I was growing up. I think my favorite was Josephine Cunington Edwards. Eric B Hare would come in second.
Read this to a Gr. 6 class. They liked it because there were lots of gross descriptions of people's limbs being amputated
i read it already and im doing a project on it so i need to read to see how the old times medicine is. and i like it is one of my favorite books.
