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.

Set of four books includes:

  • Jungle Doctor Looks for Trouble
  • Jungle Doctor Operates
  • Jungle Doctor Attacks Witchcraft
  • Jungle Doctor to the Rescue

    Family reading does not get much better! December 2, 2016
    Reviewer: Anyaq from Alaska  
    I grew up reading some of these books as a kid with my family, and now have been overjoyed to share these with my own family of 7. We read them over and over together and often God uses the story to remind us of His faithfulness and sovereignty right when we need it. The books have made us laugh much more then cry but even my husband has choked through some of the stories where pain turned to promise. What a challenge, what a blessing. You will not regret spending the extra $ on these!

    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.
