Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book is excellent for young children who are going to have their tonsils out. My daughter read it before her surgery 6 years ago, and we got a copy for my stepson when he had his out this year. Julianna and her father did a wonderful job of capturing the emotions and experiences that she went through when having this surgery, and it was so helpful to both children to read it and know better what to expect.
My four year old daughter is very bright and needs to have lots of information before heading into a new situation to make her feel comfortable. This book was so accurate in its description of the procedure that my daughter made it through her tonsilectomy like a real trooper. I highly recommend this book.
My 8 year old granddaughter LOVED this book. Everything was so well explained that she had very little fear about having her tonsils removed. Her mom found a stuffed bunny very similar to the one in the book and she had it with her throughout her procedure. This is a must read for any child preparing for this surgery!
