According to the About the Author notes in the book’s Amazon page, Dr. Fink wrote the book to explain to his then 3-year-old daughter what it is a physical therapist does.
The book follows Buddy the racoon and his friend Sammy, a bear, as they ride their bikes along a path in the woods. When Sammy hits a stick, takes a spill and hurts his foot, he winds up going to a physical therapist for treatment.
Laurie said the book does a good job explaining what a PT does and uses words and pictures that a kid would find interesting. And she wanted to give Dr. Fink a shout out: She graduated from LVC with a doctorate degree in physical therapy in 2011.
