About the Book
In The Doctor Will Be Late, Lucy Elizabeth Brown tells young readers about the best doctor in her town. Lucy’s doctor is wonderful, and she makes all of her patients feel better. There is only one problem, and as Lucy explains, it takes hours of waiting to eventually have your turn. Through this adorably illustrated story, children are taught the important reasons why there is a long wait to see the doctor, and they are introduced to the concepts of patience and empathy for others.
