Going to Hospital by Nicola Barber


Going to Hospital by Nicola Barber

This photographic book looks at what happens when a child has to go to hospital. It provides an ideal starting point for young children and adults to discuss first experiences, and explore the confusing and potentially worrying feelings that a child may experience when visiting the hospital for the first time. 'The Big Day' series is aimed at helping young children to understand and cope with change. Using simple sentences, the books offer guidance through first experiences such as moving house, starting school and the arrival of a new baby.
