Harry loves macaroni and cheese, but when he gets sick, he can't eat it! And his parents take him to the hospital. The story then follows Harry (with his Mom and Dad) through the experience of going to the hospital. Harry doesn't like having to meet lots of new people, getting poked with needles, and staying the night in a strange place, all the while feeling sick to his tummy. But with his parents' comfort and the help of lots of doctors, nurses, and other people, Harry learns that the hospital doesn't have to be a big, scary place. This is a good first book to help children who have to go to or are in the hospital. It talks about and shows many of the things they will see, hear, and experience.
PreS-Gr 2-When Harry gets stomach flu, he is admitted to the hospital, examined, and given an IV and a range of tests. The procedures are explained in straightforward language simple enough for young children to understand. Illustrations, done in soft colors and cross-hatching, show the details of his experiences as well as the comforting presence of parents; the boy's mother remains at his side throughout the stay. An endnote explains the critical role that family can play in preparing a child for hospitalization. This reassuring story is a good choice for public libraries.-Sally R.
