Dr. Marsha and the Case of the Missing Hot Dogs and Marshmallows by​Rachel B. Wellner

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This was an interesting story. The characters are excited to travel to America to solve a mystery! They get to meet new friends on their adventure in Washington DC, and they learn some interesting facts!

The story is told through rhyme, which I always enjoy in kid’s books. The plot takes the characters on a mission to solve the case of the mission hot dogs and missing marshmallows, but they also get to learn about healthy food choices as well! Overall, this was a good story with a really fun resolution that my daughter loved!

Where to Find This Book:



Doctor Marsha is a series created to entertain children at the preschool through grade school level relying on educational content. The main character, Marsha, will introduce kids to exciting challenges in basic health education as the series explores the world, vanquishing health problems. It is my hope that the characters will stimulate young minds by introducing them to a positive, professional figure that embodies the spirit of cultural competence, creativity, and adventure.
