This informative book uses brightly coloured pencil illustrations and simple, friendly language to introduce young readers to hospitals.
Through the stories of Rani, Henry, and Momo, the book shows the reasons people go to the hospital and what happens there; Rani has a broken arm, Henry is seeing a physiotherapist to help with rehabilitation following a leg amputation, and Momo has had a serious asthma attack.
With a friendly cast of healthcare “superheroes”—from oncologists to paramedics—discussion of long and short-term stays and even hospital school, this book offers answers and reassurance about a mysterious and possibly worrying new place.
Extra information about hospitals, healthcare professionals and medicine is included in the back. There’s also a short list of people who helped with research for the book, some of whom have been illustrated as characters—a fun search-and-find mission for eagle-eyed readers.
