This little book is designed to help parents prepare their child for hospitalization. It tells the story of a little girl who goes to the hospital and of her experiences there. The story is well done and includes most of the experiences a child undergoes in the hospital. Where elective surgery is contemplated, the story will be of value to parents who want to ease the shock of hospitalization.
