Format: Hardcover
"Maisy Goes to the Hospital" is a part of a new line of books called the "Maisy First Experiences" books (part of a line called "My Friend Maisy.") In this story, Maisy must pay a visit to the hospital when she hurts her leg after bouncing on a trampoline. She learns just what happens at a hospital and even makes a new friend.

Maisy gets an x-ray and stays overnight at the hospital. She misses her friends, but later they come to visit her. They even get to sign her cast.

Overall, I think this story is a great introduction for any kid that would have to go to the hospital. Each experience is unique, but this provides a good idea of the basics. Definitely recommended for all "Maisy" fans and as an introduction to this particular "first experience."

Lucy Cousins has created another wonderful Maisy book for children of all ages. Maisy is in the hospital which many children can relate to. This would be an excellent book to present to a child who did have to make a hospital visit, I think. The book is delightful and the illustrations are great. Maisy is in my opinion, one of the best series around for little folks. She is just great.

We bought this for my daughter to help her process a trip she had to take to the emergency room. The story worked well to help her talk through the experience but the book's binding has already separated from the cover. She wasn't rough with it at all. Not sure what happened. Bad glue?

While visiting my granddaughter I had the privilege of reading Maisy Goes to the Hospital several times in one day. This is proof enough to me that this book garners the attention of children, both with the stories and the illustrations.

Lucy Cousins is the author and the illustrator of this and other Maisy books. In this book the main character, Maisy, breaks a leg, so she needed to visit the hospital. This book covers many topics which can prove scary to children: being injured, seeing the doctor, going to a hospital, and spending the night away from home.

This book is entertaining for children and the illustrations draw their attention to the details of the story as they follow along.

My granddaughter and I highly recommend this book to everyone with children.

When Maisy falls off the trampoline and breaks her leg, she has to stay in the hospital overnight. This is a new experience for Maisy but she soon makes new friends.

A delightful story for young children especially if they find themselves with a broken bone. Maisy has been a favorite of ours for many years. The illustrations are bright and the writing is simple for young ones to understand. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
