Kevin Goes to the Hospital

Kevin Goes to the Hospital
Liesbet Slegers
Illustrated by Liesbet Slegers

                Kevin is a little boy who enjoys playing and having fun outside. But one day he trips and falls. He lands on his head and is hurt. His mommy takes him to the hospital to get it checked out. Kevin has to stay in the hospital for a little while. He is a little scared, but soon learns all about staying in the hospital. It isn’t as bad as he feared. It ends with the child happy to be going home and feeling better. The book was written to explain the hospital to a young child who might be afraid of what happens upon arrival. The author did a great job of making the visit seem safe and perhaps even a little fun. The pictures almost tell the story on their own and compliment the writing very well. The book is age appropriate, but my six year old son enjoyed the story when I read it to his younger sister.

I received this book free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.
