Tubes in my Ears: My Trip to the Hospital is a great book for and middle level student. This book is about a little boy, named Luke, who needs to have tubes put into his ears. It talks about how Luke becomes scared, but the doctors and nurses are there to comfort him and keep him calm. This book has great picture and it also has little side notes where it gives the definitions to certain words and gives more explanation. Even though this book may be geared more towards fourth and fifth grade, the whole point of Luke’s story is to show hoe the hospital is not that scary and how having tubes in your ears does not make him a different person. This is a very appropriate level of inclusion for Luke is society because it shows that being different is not a bad thing. Having tubes put into his ears does not make him any different then someone without tubes in their ears. The last page of the book show Luke sitting on steps talking to a bunch of his friends about his trip to the hospital and his friends are not looking at him any differently. He looks and acts like that same Luke before the tubes.
I would most definitely use this book in my classroom because in the middle level, young adolescent, age group is when all the self-issue and egocentric personalities come out. Reading, Tubes in my Ears: My Trip to the Hospital, to the student and the having a group discussion with them would help the students understand that students with a disability are not any different. Middle level students are always concerned about how their friends and classmates see them and having a procedure done, like getting tubes in your ears, could make a middle level student extremely self conscious.

Told from a child's perspective...this book is my 3 year old's favorite! It treats a sensitive subject in a respectful way to kids...not talking down to them...but instead looking at it from a child's eyes. Highly recommended!Was this review helpful?
