Ask Dr. K Fisher

Calling all Teachers and Librarians! 

Dr. K. Fisher is looking for ideas…

In this fun science learning series, Dr. K. Fisher dispenses suggestions to animals in need and along the way sneaks in some interesting information, too. No question is too strange for Dr. K.; he answers each with sympathy and knowledge. With the format of a picture book, an extra surprise—a letter from Dr. K.—inside, and the rich content of an animal encyclopedia, this funny series is the perfect combination of wacky humor and solid reference.
