In this book, Tippie learns that love and support behind actions make people feel better, rather than just the actions themselves. In this kind-hearted story, Tippie helps his brother’s injured foot in the same way a doctor would. Tippie makes Jackson feel better through his silly personality and shows how much he cares about him. The act of helping someone in need is a way to demonstrate your love for them.

You’ll find a colouring book to engage with the story hands-on in each book.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Reedsy Discovery.  I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.


Tippie is like many young kids; every day is a battle to get them to take a bath or shower. They would rather wear a hat or ponytail than run a comb or brush through their disheveled hair. They moan and groan and sometimes run in the opposite direction of the bathroom. Tippie wasn’t thrilled about washing up before heading outside to play. Luckily, Mama let them skip this once. 

When kids play indoors out outside, falls and scrapes will occur. Their knees are often found with bruises or covered with band-aids. Poor Jackson, a sweet donkey, jumped and cut his hoof on a fence. While Mama could have cleaned and bandaged the sore herself, she happily accepted Tippie’s help. Tippie looked absolutely adorable in Mama’s doctor coat and headlamp. It was sweet watching him examine his friend. Tippie used familiar medical instruments your child might be familiar with, such as a stethoscope and tongue dispenser. It was also humorous listening to Jackson question why Tippie looked in his mouth when he had a hurt hoof, not a sore throat. I bet many readers will wonder the same thing! 

Kids love playing pretend, especially doctors. So don’t let the fun end when the story is over. Grab some supplies and let your child doctor you or any of their stuffed friends!

Like with every other book by Nyx, Dr. Tippie will bring lots of smiles and endless laughter! Great storyline. Fantastic illustrations. The combo makes this a book your family will read over and over and over again. It did have minor editing mistakes, but overall, it was a sensational read. 

This book is perfect for beginning readers. It’s also ideal for children three years and older. 

Join Tippie as he tries to lift Jackson’s spirit while doctoring his injured hoof.

Gifted with innate intuition and healing abilities from a young age, Nyx felt a natural calling to care for and rehabilitate horses. In 2016, she welcomed her first rescue horse, Willow, into her home, marking the beginning of a profound journey. Since then, Nyx’s herd has grown to include two Ponies, one Standardbred, two Thoroughbreds, four charming Donkeys, and one spirited  Miniature Horse. Spending quality time studying their mannerisms and bonding with each animal has fully allowed Nyx to appreciate their distinct personalities and quirks.

Nyx welcomed new residents into her heart when she introduced Tippie, Nala, and Jackson to the existing family. Immediately upon meeting the charismatic Tippie, Nyx recognized his star quality. She dedicated countless hours to ensuring the newcomer’s smooth transition, tenderly cradling Tippie and Nala as she read bedtime tales. Little did Nyx know, she would soon begin crafting bedtime stories starring her beloved creatures. Tippie’s curious personality distinguished him from the other animals. He embodied a free soul, a courageous rebel, unafraid of taking chances. Tippie-Doo doesn’t care who you are. He wants to tell you who he is!

As Nyx observed Tippie’s growth over two years, she could envision the antics and adventures awaiting them. Her mind overflowed with possibilities for bringing their stories to life. She could picture all the silly things he did and what they could do in her mind.

Nyx gladly put her heart and soul into her writing. The Adventures Of Tippie-Doo is a passion project she is excited to share with the world. Just like Tippie, “There’s NOTHING you can’t do!”
