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 And the Whirlwind
  • Jungle Doctor on the Hop
  • Jungle Doctor Spots a Leopard
  • Jungle Doctor's Crooked Dealings
  • Jungle Doctor's Enemies
  • Jungle Doctor in Slippery Places

    Inspiring! June 22, 2014
    Reviewer: sylvia  
    I always respect a godly person who is willing to obey the call of God and uproot him/herself from his/her comfort zone to bring the the message of repentance and life to a dying world which is seeped in sin. I respect Dr Paul White for facing the challenges to bring that light, and through his books and audio, reach many for Christ.

    Seeking Truth Daily 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.

    Great stories January 14, 2013
    Reviewer: Homeschool mom  
    I purchased these books after reading the great description and fabulous reviews. The stories are captivating and well written. My kids loved the missionary adventures and always begged me to read more. I found the native language made the books hard to read. I eventually set the books aside and started other read-alouds with the kids. My third-grader is just learning to read chapter books so these are too difficult for him, but I imagine in a few years he will enjoy reading them.

    Great addition to any home library December 8, 2011
    Reviewer: Anonymous Person from VT United States  
    With four children, all of whom are avid readers, it's difficult to find quality books to feed their voracious appetites for literature.  We own books 1-6 and the rest are on our wishlist.  Somehow I missed that there were more!  My oldest has loved them and read them through multiple times and the younger kids are following in her steps quickly.

    I love that they add an element to our home library of missions, other cultures, and faith that is otherwise missing and hard to find.  It is next to impossible to find books like these through the local library and thus we must either borrow them from friends (if they have them, which they don't in this case) or own them ourselves.  Being able to find them here at a good price is a real blessing.

    The writing is readable, the stories vivid, and the books paint good picture of missions work.  They have been great conversation starters about the Christian faith and various cultures as well.  All in all, they are highly recommended.

    Awesome books! October 7, 2010
    Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
    We love the Jungle Doctor Books!  My husband had been reading them aloud in the evenings, but I couldn't wait.  I read through the whole series before he had even finished the first one.  The kids are intrigued my the African aspects of the books. I highly recommend them! I want to get the rest of the series soon!   They are full of Adventure, God Word, interesting medical situations and so much more!
