Product description

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.

Kindle Unlimited, says grade P-2, looked it up online, still no idea but guessing from the to hospital {brits don't bother with the 'the'} is British, but from the appearance of the 'child' would assume that does not fit, and for possible 'american' school would be k-2 and that is still not very old at all. The story was decent but too simplistic, not that expected anyone to rattle off medical stuff, but don't see that really helping a child or a kid to not be scared.If they were older child, as it appears from the drawings, they wouldn't be that freaked out over a hospital, but they usually have more what/why questions. As something as serious as this situation would be in real life, was way simplistic for a sorta kinda but not really explanation of what was going on with the kid. The end of the book had some interesting information, but again it was information that needed to be a bit less simplistic and also since most things would be the parents' responsibility or something they would be doing {not the kid} not sure why it was in a book that was directed for a much younger audience.

I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review. I recently read this book and I have to say that I love the way that it has been written. It is very clear, lovely pictures to depict what is being said, I like that the doctors and nurses in this book all have happy faces which makes them seem much less scary if you were a child looking at this book. It is a very well portrayed book and when my son learns to read and if he ever had to go to hospital, I would definitely keep this book in mind. I think that it will be very beneficial to any young child who is nervous or scared of going to the big bad scary hospital.

I read this story with my children, they enjoyed it as it is a good story for them to read along with and they adore reading. It has a fab bit at the end of the story with checklists for if you need to visit a hospital with your child. The kids loved the activities too! I have voluntarily reviewed this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hospital admits can be very stressful 24 Mar. 2017
By goldenrose222003 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review.

Books to help children and their families cope with being in the hospital are very important. It happens to many families, but rarely "yours." It's scary and unfamiliar for everyone.

This book is very positive. I wish proper terms for bodily functions were used throughout, but the tests were honestly described and encouraging.

The story itself is followed with a guide for items to bring. This is very helpful, although we add a few to the list as well (such as vending machine change, charging cords, toiletries).

It also contains some simple games for children to keep them entertained. This is an excellent addition.
