My first visit to hospital ISBN: 9780237520175
Fairclough, Chris and Hunter, Rebecca

Jonathan must go to hospital to have grommets in his ears, and in bright photographs and simple, large print sentences we see his day surgery. Dad takes him in, and he meets his special nurse. We see all the admission procedures, his meeting the doctor, being taken to theatre, his post-operative recovery, and his going home. Everything is very clear and positive. There is an index and a page of advice to parents and teachers. The consultant was Cheryl Hooper, the director of Action for Sick Children. Excellent.
