Editorial Reviews


Reviewed By Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers' Favorite

Hospitals have a purpose: to help people get better. But they can be scary places, even for grownups. A child is easily frightened by all the people, the noise, the comings and goings and, of course, all the tests that they do. If a child is very sick and requires a visit, or even a lengthy stay in a hospital, it's good to be prepared with drinks, snacks, and lots of good story material to keep the child content, comfortable, and entertained. 

Jack was surprised to discover that he had to go to the hospital. It all started while walking to school, when his knees suddenly hurt so badly that he couldn't walk. The next day, Jack's knees were swollen. His parents took him to the hospital and the doctors and nurses did all kinds of tests, including an x-ray, which Jack was allowed to see. Everything and everyone at the hospital were super-nice, helping Jack relax during his ordeal. The story never explains what the diagnosis was, but we do learn that Jack's hospital visit wasn't quite as frightening as he thought it would be.

Based on a true story, John Priest's picture book story, Jack Goes to Hospital, is a compassionate look at one child's hospital visit. Using colorful illustrations and simple, but effective language, the author helps the young reader learn about hospitals in general and why they do certain tests. It is also a reassuring story, as the author clearly points out that hospitals are there to help people, not to frighten them. Jack's visit to the hospital ended up being less frightening than anticipated, and it actually turned into a little bit of an adventure and a learning experience. This is an excellent book to help young children who need to visit hospitals on occasion or for longer periods of time.

About the Author

John Priest has been writing for children since 1985. He has two daughters and lives with his wife in the UK. Most of his time is now spent with his wife and their five grandchildren, telling them stories, playing and acting like a five-year-old. This story is based around the real-life events of Jack, his eldest grandson, who was diagnosed with Polyarticular Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis, Uveitis and Hypermobility at the age of four. A difficult and tough two years later, Jack is winning most of his battles with the illness. He goes to Hospital on a regular basis and at just six years of age, is fully prepared for his examinations. Jack and John hope that this book helps your own child's visits to Hospital, and that both you and your child can use the story and tips to make your trip to Hospital less stressful.
