Dr Martin Ellingham (Martin Clunes), a brilliant and successful vascular surgeon at Imperial College London, develops haemophobia – a fear of blood, forcing him to stop practising surgery. He obtains a post as the sole general practitioner (GP) in the sleepy Cornish village of Portwenn, where he had spent childhood holidays with his Aunt Joan (Stephanie Cole), who owns a local farm. Upon arriving in Portwenn – where, to his frustration, the locals address him as “Doc Martin” – he finds the surgery in chaos and inherits an incompetent receptionist, Elaine Denham (Lucy Punch). In series 2–4, she is replaced by Pauline Lamb (Katherine Parkinson), a new receptionist, and later also a phlebotomist. In Series 5, Morwenna Newcross (Jessica Ransom) takes up the post.
Creative use of imagination is encouraged by this free pastime. Why not ask your little one to elaborate on what is happening in the scene or to add characters to the background? By engaging your kids like this you are teaching them to use their imagination, creativity and firing up their brains to better understand the world around them.
Hee Hawww! Yahoo! Giddy Up! What kid hasn't imagined themselves King (or Queen) of the rodeo? Can't you picture it? A western landscape...hot and dusty...sunny and smokey. And who arises from this scene? None other than the fastest-firing-gunslinger in all the west! This kid epitomizes what a cowboy should be. Decked out like the cowboys of cowboys in a: vest and tie, cowboy boots, rodeo jeans covered by chaps, gun and holster, with the coolest cowboy hat to complete the look. Now that's a cowboy! And that's just what your kids are imagining...that they are REAL cowboys and cowgirls!
Coloring books are a thing of the past. Kids today aren't as thrilled by a basic coloring book as children a generation ago. That is because these children have been spoiled by all the fantastic new methods of coloring using the computer or with fancy markers and pens. While you might get away with a coloring book and crayons for a long car trip, don't expect your school age children to sit quietly at the table coloring pictures the old fashioned way – there is a something better around, and they know it.
Parents can easily leave their children all by themselves after a little assistance in the beginning to let them go through their journey to encounter each alphabet with amazement as each of these has a different story to tell in the coloring pages. The amazing world of attractive colors maintains 100% focus thus achieving complete concentration resulting in complete comprehension of the subject matter. Armed with coloring pages for their aid is no longer a subject to fear with. Bright colors, easy to identify shapes and drawings your child will love populate this interactive universe. They are ready to help your child, learn, laugh, and play. You won’t believe how fast your child will learn! Parents will be overwhelmed by watching them having fun with numbers, enjoying while understanding the geometrical shapes, concepts etc.
