Much Too Much Birthday

(3) K-3 Maud the Koala series. Maud, a young koala, unhappily goes to the doctor for her yearly physical (Doctors) and gets overwhelmed at her big, commotion-filled birthday party (Birthday). In each amiable and relatable easy-reader story, the narrator describes Maud's reticence through natural vocabulary and a combination of illustrated pages and well-spaced comic panels. The books include a note to caregivers about shot anxiety and sensory sensitivities. Review covers these Maud the Koala titles: Fish Are Not Afraid of Doctors and Much Too Much Birthday.
