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.

Set of six books includes:

  • Jungle Doctor's Africa
  • Jungle Doctor Pulls a Leg
  • Eyes on Jungle Doctor
  • Jungle Doctor Meets a Lion
  • Jungle Doctor Stings a Scorpion
  • Jungle Doctor on Safari

    He likes them.... October 17, 2013
    Reviewer: Claudia E.  
    The series is about a missionary doctor working in Africa with a dedicated team in a low-tech medical environment.My son really has enjoyed these so far. We first bought one from Vision Forum and then bought the whole set from here.My son is 11 and he enjoys suspense and fiction that is from a biblical point of view. Although he does not feel his sister, who is 13, would like them do to some scary parts.I think this is a great series to introduce to your kids to give them a hint of missionary life. I have read that some who read them way back when actually fell in love with Africa through them.

    We love these books! October 10, 2011
    Reviewer: Amy Griffith from Denton, TX United States  
    My 8 and 7 year old boys read the Jungle Doctor books all the time. I got this set for my 7 year old's last birthday, and within weeks, they'd both read each of them. Now they're rereading them. The jungle doctor is someone who they routinely bring up in regular conversations, and even my 4 year old knows a lot of the plot lines because his older brothers tell him all about the books. They've learned a lot about foreign cultures, missions, medicine, and so much more.

    We absolutely love the Jungle Doctor books February 18, 2010
    Reviewer: Delyssa from Lewiston, ID  
    We absolutely love the Jungle Doctor books. they are full of adventure, a Biblical Lesson, and along the way you may learn a thing or two about being a doctor. I found two puppets of a lion and a Gorilla which make the books come to life even more. My 5 year old has now decided that he wanted to go to Africa and be a Doctor when he grows up.

    It's like reading about my grandfather! July 20, 2009
    Reviewer: Ruth  
    I'm so thrilled to see those reprinted - they are my favorite, and I have a complete set of the old ones, found with great effort!

    My boys LOVE these books, and we have read every one and some several times! My grandfather was a missionary in that part of Africa, and reading these to my boys is like an enthralling biography of my Christian grandfather's life!
