Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
ea. vol: photogs. by Jim Judkis. unpaged. Mister Rogers' First Experiences Bks.. CIP. Putnam. 1988. PLB $12.95; pap. $5.95. PreS-Gr 2 In his usual tone of sympathetic understanding and gentle reassurance, Mr. Rogers discusses the common childhood traumas of hospitalization and grief over the loss of a pet. Large, clear color photographs support the texts. Going to the Hospital follows two appealing preschool age children, a pigtailed black girl and red-headed white boy, as they experience the preliminary procedures of getting an identification bracelet, being examined with various instruments, having blood drawn, and talking with a nurse and doctor, while comforting but straightforward explanations for the procedures are given. Since most of the pictures are posed, no one looks frightened or in pain. No details of surgery or postoperative recovery are shown. The Hospital Book Crown, 1981 by James Howe is more comprehensive and realistic, but with its black-and-white photographs of actual hospitalized children and longer text, it is better suited to older children more able to absorb the complicated and sometimes disturbing information. Sara Stein's A Hospital Story Walker, 1984 follows a little girl's tonsillectomy well but is more limited. All of these books have helpful information directed to parents. When a Pet Dies portrays a Hispanic family whose dog dies and a white family whose cat dies. The animals are not shown suffering. The grieving children are posed as feeling sad and angry, being comforted by their parents, asking questions about death, conducting a pet funeral, and finally adjusting to the loss. In the text the theme is delicately expanded to embrace all sorrow and the happy fact that the love, once shared, lives on. Again, although there is other good literature in this field such as The Tenth Good Thing About Barney Atheneum, 1971 by Judith Viorst, Jim's Dog Muffins Greenwillow, 1984 by Miriam Cohen, and It Must Hurt a Lot Multnomah, 1985 by Doris Sanford, this nonfiction book is more explicit and specific. The format and typography are clear and attractive, the language and concepts simple but sound psychologically, and the material geared either for an adult to share or for children to read alone.

Meet the Author

Producer, magician, writer, puppeteer, minister, husband, father, Fred Rogers started out in children's television thirty years ago. The direction he trailblazed was the "creation of television programming that spoke, with respect, to the concerns of early childhood, not as adults see it but as children feel it."

He has received virtually every major award in the television industry for work in his field, and dozens of others from special-interest groups.

Fred Rogers lives in Pennsylvania.

    Mister Roger's usual educational subject

    My 3 year old Granddaughter is fascinated by this book and asks me to read it to her over and over. Some parts are too advanced or detailed for her at this time so I skip over those parts for now. Mister Rogers is so good at helping kids learn new things.

    Going to the Hospital

    I bought this to read to my 3 year old grandson before he went in for surgery. It was a useful learning aid to prepare him for the hospital. After we read a page we could discuss the illustration and how it may pertain to his stay.

    A reviewer

    This book was great for my 3 year old. She needed some minor surgery and when looking for books to explain what was going to happen while she was there, I found this. We read it several times before we went to the hospital. The day of the procedure we were able to say things like 'see you'll be wearing special PJ's just like it said in the book'. My daughter loved this book even more when she got home from the hospital and it really helped her deal with the whole situation. It is a bit outdated, it was written in 1998. I also find it to be a bit long. However, it is one of the few books out there that talk to children in an age-appropriate way that is easy to understand yet kind. We have several of the Fred Rogers books and I would recommend getting them before they all go out of print.
