Zeki goes for his development check at 1 year old. This is a perfect story for children and families, helping them to understand that a visit to the nurse and doctor is fun to do and also helps Mums and Dads to know that all is well.

There are lots of things that need checking and the development milestones at the first birthday give a good guide to things like physical development, crawling and walking, understanding,  doing actions to songs and responding to words and actions. Zeki can do all these things.

Alanna Books has recently joined with Ken Wilson Max and they are called, Alanna Max. A brilliant connection and we look forward to more books, with a wide range of stories and topics in a diverse approach, available for children families, nurseries and schools.

Anna McQuin studied child development at university and works with Sure-Start Centres and community teams. She has written many books for young children.

Ruth Hearson divides her time on illustrating books and in working with community art projects. Zedi Gets a Checkup is her third book with Alanna Books.

This is a great book to have and the series of Zeki and also Lulu and Zeki are excellent choices for families, nurseries and schools.
