CHAPTER 1

Franklin sometimes had colds and tummy aches, and every now and then he got cuts and bruises. He went to the doctor's for regular checkups, and once the doctor came to Franklin's house. But, until now, Franklin had never been to the hospital.

Franklin and his friends were playing soccer. The ball was kicked to Franklin, and it hit him hard in the chest.

"Ooof!" he groaned. But he kept on playing.

That night at bath time Franklin said, "Ouch!" when he dried his tummy.

His mother took a closer look.

"Hmmm," she said. "We'll go to the doctor first thing tomorrow."

With gentle fingers, Dr. Bear poked and prodded Franklin's shell. She discovered a small crack.

"It isn't serious, Franklin," she said. "But I have to put a pin in your shell to help it grow properly. I'll schedule an operation for you tomorrow morning at the hospital."

"Will it hurt?" asked Franklin.

"We'll give you sleep medicine before the operation, so you won't feel a thing," replied Dr. Bear. "When you wake up, you'll be a little sore. But we'll keep you in the hospital overnight to make sure that you're okay."

Dr. Bear explained that operations can only bed one when a patient has an empty stomach. She told Franklin not to eat or drink after bedtime that night.

Franklin didn't mind. His tummy was too busy flip-flopping for him to think about eating.

After school, Franklin's friends came to visit.

Franklin showed them the book about hospitals that Dr. Bear had given him. Fox pointed to a picture and asked why everyone was wearing a mask.

"Masks keep germs out of the operating room," explained Franklin.

"Are you scared?" asked Beaver.

"Of course he's not scared," replied Bear. "Franklin's very brave."

Franklin didn't say anything.

It was early when Franklin and his parents left for the hospital. With his blue blanket and Sam clutched in his arms, Franklin said goodbye to his room.

Franklin's mother gave him a hug. "You'll be home tomorrow," she reminded him.

"I know," Franklin said softly.

"You're a very brave little turtle," said his father.

    Just what we were looking for

    Our 3 year old was going into the hospital for kidney surgery to repair a blocked uterine line. All the children's "hospital" books we were finding were more about tours or getting a cast. This book was perfect! Talked about the hospital prep, hospital tour, needing to spend the night, etc. We read it several times with our son and brought it to the hospital with us. Our whole family highly recommends!

    OK-Other Franklin books rate higher in my opinion

    As always with Franklin books, it tried to deliver a good message, unfortunately I felt this lesson was a little confusing and possibly over some of the little ones heads. I would recommend the book though, just wouldn't be my first choice of the Franklin series.
