This week Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler celebrate the hard work of doctors, nurses and carers. Tune in to see Julia read Zog and the Flying Doctors and a performances of ‘Can Princesses Be Doctors?’ song.

Axel Scheffler draws Zog, Princess Pearl and Sir Gadabout in special protective clothing to show children that underneath are lovely friendly doctors ready to help people in need. Axel also illustrated them on the cover of this week’s The Big Issue magazine. Find out how you can help support the homeless here.
