A Visit to the Hospital.

A Visit to the Hospital. This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract I am pleased to see the number of books that have come on the market in the past few years for children preparing them for the experience of a hospitalization. There seems to be a divergence as to whether such a book should be a book that will prepare the child specifically for a tonsillectomy or try to cover the more general aspects of a hospitalization. "A Visit to the Hospital" is of the former type. It certainly gives a very friendly, interested approach to the child and could not help but relieve some of the apprehension in any child. I feel that this book does a fine job in bringing reasonable acceptance of a hospitalization to the six- to ten-year-old who is having a tonsillectomy and who can sort out the details for himself in a leisurely manner with his increased comprehension and attention span.
