Hugh Lofting first began writing about Dr. Dolittle in a series of letters to children, written in the trenches during World War I. The first collection was finally published in 1920, and promptly became a beloved classic. Now Oak Meadow presents a special edition of this globe-spanning tale, concerning the compassionate doctor who prefers the company of animals and uses his unique ability to converse with them to better understand nature and all the far-flung places of the world. With fantastical sites such as the floating Spidermonkey Island, and amazing creatures like the Great Glass Sea Snail, this story will delight budding readers and listeners alike. The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle is included in the Oak Meadow Second Grade curriculum package.
