This is a cracking little board book for reading to very young children. It shows how doctors help people who are sick, before relating how Martyn Lloyd-Jones chose to preach the good news instead, with many people coming to hear him.

Blair Bailie’s bright and attractive illustrations cover eight double pages, including a brilliant cartoon version of ‘the Doctor’! The book concludes, ‘Most preachers do not become well known … But when God keeps them faithful, preachers help people wherever they are’.
