PreS-Gr 2-Helmer answers questions that children might have about nursing homes: why people go to them, what they do there, and how to feel more comfortable when visiting. The book puts an upbeat spin on the subject, suggesting things visitors might do for and with elderly people, such as giving them hugs, playing games, and reading together. Each two-page chapter has a full-page photograph facing a page of large-print text. The captioned photographs show adults and children assisting or just enjoying being with a senior citizen. Many ethnic groups and ages are represented. The text is simply written and pronunciations follow bold-faced words.-Stephani Hutchinson, Pioneer Elementary School, Sunnyside, WA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
