Going to Hospital (Big Day) ISBN: 9780750253635
Barber, Nicola
Published by Wayland, 2008
A basic story about being ill and going into hospital. Very simple sentences and lots of photos take us around a children's ward and give such details as what to take when you go in, some 'machines' you might encounter, being hungry before surgery, cleaning hands with gel, and family being able to visit and even stay in the case of parents. Easily understood and encouraging. Interestingly, there is a list of words at the end that one might need if writing about the hospital experience - not exactly a glossary as there are no explanations of the words, but a good list. There is also a list of further reading, one of websites (for both children and parents) and an index.
