I was very excited when I received this review copy of  A Gold Star for Zog by Julia Donaldson, illustrated by Axel Scheffler from Scholastic a while ago (me being a big Julia fan and all).  From what I can gather this book has been in print since 2010  under the name Zog, but it's just been released here in the US this month!  So it's available here now and it's all the fun filled, rhyming adventure I've come to expect from this fantastic author.
You see Zog is right at the top of his dragon class when it comes to learning all the important tasks of a dragon, but he also happens to be very accident prone.  Don't worry, whenever Zog find's himself in trouble in steps Princess Pearl who's always around to mend his scrapes and bruises.

After reading this book I knew it was time for me to make that Doctor Kit I've been meaning to make for my kids for ages!  And I meant to.  But I didn't.  It's been a crazy summer.

Though I have plenty of inspiration from blogging friends when I do get around to making one.  Here's a mommy made Doctor's kit by Georgia over at Love and Lollipops, I just adore the kit she created and I really really really want to find a case just like the one she used!  Also, there are many wonderful ideas in Vanessa's post about a Doctor themed birthday party over at Silly Eagle Books.  Super cute stuff (I love that her little girl wanted a doctor theme, such fun).

Like I said, I've yet to create a kit for my kids (which I know they'll use all the time, since they regularly play doctor games- usually using tape for bandages and the play tool kit for doc tools).  But I did whip up the first item for the kit I plan to make.  Bandages out of felt.

I just need to get a bit of Velcro and those bandages will be finished.  Even without the Velcro my kids have been enjoying fixing up their buddies.
