Overview

Johnston emphasizes the fact that the people who work in a hospital are caring individuals whose main goal is to help people get well. The text stresses that even though shots and some tests may hurt slightly, they are only done for the patients' good. Opening with what to pack and procedures involved in checking into the hospital, the book then offers short two-page sections that describe meals, IV tubes, blood tests, anesthesia, and surgery. A full-page full-color photo showing calm adults caring for children supplements each section. This book is shorter and easier than Fred Rogers's Going to the Hospital (Putnam, 1988); most second and third graders could read it on their own. Unfamiliar words are explained in context accompanied by the phonetic pronunciation
