My Brother Needs an Operation based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
I bought this book at a heart conference in Edmonton June 2000. It is a story about a young boy needing open heart surgery and how it relates to his brother. It deals with feelings, and with staying with relatives while his brother is in hospital, plus more. It is a wonderfully told story, with questions to ask your own child as you read through it together. I found the tips for parents Anna has included especially helpful.The back of the book has activities for the sibling/s to do while the brother/sister is in the hospital. I originally bought this book to read to my twin boys when my older son will need further surgery, but it is my first son who loves the book and has taken ownership of it. I read the book to him quite often, changing the words around to suit his needs. This will be a book that we will treasure for many years.
