Format: Paperback
This book is about a boy who goes into the hospital for a one night stay after an ear operation. The pictures and words are bright, cheery and comforting to young readers. My daughter liked to read this book even after her hospital stay. It was written in England so it shows hospital scenes (like children in group wards) which didn't apply to my daughters stay. I pointed out differences between what would and did happen to her. A good book to show a very young child what going to the hospital will be like and that it isn't as scary as it might seem.

Format: Paperback
When my son was going to have tubes put in his ears and his Adnoids removed, we purchased this book. He was just barely 3 years old, but this book explained on HIS level everything that was going to happen to him (from the little boy's ear first hurting, to everything that happens at the hospital before and after the surgery).

We took the book to the hospital and he pointed out to me where in the book it showed each step as they happened to him (ex. nurse taking his temperature). The book did this so well, and my son was so calm, the doctor decided he didn't need to give him the normal shot of something to calm him down. They just carried him down to surgery.

He just turned 4 and we are having to remove his tonsils this next month. He is reading the book again and loving it. Even though the procedure is not the exact same as the one the little boy in the book has, it has been very easy to replace ear ache with sore throat. EXCELLENT BOOK

I bought this for my daughter in anticipation of her tonsil surgery. She loves it and still loves it. She likes looking for the little duck hidden in the pictures. Very cute and does the trick of showing them what to expect.

This is one of those 'easy reader' books that come out of England, I believe, but it works well for a "read to me" book also. We have a ton of these, this particular one was great for when my 3.5 year old son was going in for same day surgery. The pictures look more English than American (i.e. my son asked what that THING was on the nurses' head - a nurses' cap) but overall these books do a great job at just explaining what is going on, with real people. Much like a picture book, and nothing offensive or scary about it.
