This is a fun story about animals waiting to see the vet… but something weird is happening in the waiting room… I hadn't even noticed until I was reading it to a child who pointed out to me that an animal had disappeared! I want to read this to children, let them enjoy it through to the end then read it again and ask them to pay particular attention to the pictures to see if they can work out what is going on; a bit of detective work is necessary here!

This story really is fun and the children will want to share it over and over again until they truly have worked everything out.
They could write their own version of the story afterwards, changing the animals and what is wrong with them; they could also design the ideal waiting room for animals and/or humans at the doctor's and label it in French.

The pupils will feel more confident understanding about body parts, aches and pains and talking about healthy living. You could also do some dictionary work: the children have to find the French for the animals in the story as they are not your usual pets.

Topics or themes:
body parts, aches and pains, healthy living, animals

the imperative, au/a la/aux


How much time required:
