Timberdoodle's review Learn more
Popular for a Reason
In the 1940s there was probably no more crucial calling than that of a missionary, no more intriguing place than Africa, and a no more gratifying task than that of a doctor. Mix the three together and you have a series of mesmerizing children's books that have inspired multiple generations of children to serve God regardless of the cost.

Bringing Medical Help to a Primitive Culture
Born in 1910, Paul White was an extraordinary Australian missionary who labored several years as a physician in the African nation of Tanzania. The Jungle Doctor series is based on his experiences working in the bush and recounts the struggles of providing medicine in a primitive colonial hospital.

Epidemics, Drug Dealers, Witchdoctors, Wildlife... vs. The Gospel
Epidemics weren't the only battle the doctor faced. Satan used drug dealers, witchdoctors, and menacing wildlife in an attempt to choke out the doctor's Gospel message. Yet Paul, clearly a gifted communicator, effectively shared God's love with Tanzanian families in a unique way that made complete sense to them. If your family likes read-aloud books, know that these are some of the best, for there is much to discuss in nearly every chapter. From the idiosyncrasies of the Australian language and how diseases are spread, to the dark side of unbelief, each volume is an education in itself.

Addictive for All Ages
First published in the late 1940s and early 1950s, the Jungle Doctor series has been translated into more than eighty languages including Braille, and is newly reprinted for another generation. While the reading level is for ages 10 to 12, these addictive books are captivating for all ages.

    Timeless December 25, 2014
    Reviewer: Shelly O.  
    Family favorite for two generations and counting... I read a couple of these when I was a girl. Got them from our church library. Ran across them again as an adult in another church library. Brought them home to read to the kids and we were hooked! I pieced together the entire set on my own from used book dealers. Wish this would have been available then! We've read them (the entire series) through for family devotions at least three times. My adult children still love to have them read aloud. You cannot go wrong with this! Don't tell my kids, but I'm thinking of ordering a set for each of the three for them to have for their future families... Shhhh!

    Less than enthusiastic reader loves these books January 3, 2014
    Reviewer: Brooke K.  
    My oldest is a reader. I mean the can't drag him from his books kind of reader. His younger brother not so much. We have listened to several of the Jungle Doctor audio books and the younger son seemed to enjoy them so I thought this would be a good addition and maybe induce him to read more. It has done the trick and he is reading quite a bit more since Christmas. What I like about these books is that they show a man who loves Jesus living that out in an overt way. We constantly hear him referring to Christ in everyday talking. He uses great word pictures about God, too. What boy couldn't benefit from hearing a man speak of Christ so often? The Jungle Doctor also has a winsome way of speaking of Christ that isn't forced and I believe my sons will be better equipped to share Jesus as the natural course of their speech from these books. All in all a good purchase!
