Toppsta Comment

I really wish this book had been around when my kids were younger. It's utterly brilliant, with simple illustrations and and information on what really goes on inside a hospital from the moment you arrive, through tests and scans, to what happens if you have to stay in overnight. Whether you're visiting a relative or having treatment yourself, this will really help to alleviate the mystery and anxiety many children experience when visiting a hospital.

This book shows what life is like in a hospital.  It’s very educational because it gives lots of information about the body, for example it has a diagram of the tonsils and explains what they do.  It’s presented very nicely and has lots of lift the flaps in it. A fact in here I didn’t know before is that young patients can do school work in a school room when they are at hospital.  The book is straightforward to read and is very interesting.

We love Usborne books. It's a nice large board book with sturdy flaps. Very informative for children learning about hopsitals. Sophie loved looking at the playrooms and the children's ward, showing the fun elements to hopsitals. She liked pointing everything out and asked lots of questions.

Love, love, love this book! We are big fans of Usbourne already- but this is by far the best. I cannot believe the amount of information that is in it, and the way it has all been displayed. This is an amazing book for kids like mine who love Operation Ouch, but also great to share with children who are going to hospital.

Another great and informative book from Usborne, this time about hospitals. My 6 year old has been interested in hospitals since his dad had an accident recently and had to stay overnight, he has also got into watching Operation Ouch. This book explains lots about hospitals and what happens in them without being too overwhelming with information. We love the lift the flap format as my son still loves flap books so finding an age appropriate one (especially about something he is interested in) is brilliant. The book takes you through different aspects of being in a hospital, different wards and why you might be on them, with lots of little extra bits of information under the flaps. A really good book for 5-8 year olds, I really must look at more of this series! The illustrations are very appealing without being really gory or graphic.

My daughter wants to be a midwife when she grows up so she was totally delighted with this book. It's a good size, not too large, but still crammed full of lots of fantastic information about hospitals. Divided into seven sections: arriving, outpatients, emergency, staying overnight, scans and tests, operations and mothers and babies, there are lots of flaps to interact with. Lots of great questions were asked. A really good factual book that makes good use of space and uses all the right terminology. Excellent in fact!

 Isabella sat and read this cover to cover and really enjoyed it, she loved lifting the flaps and found it very interesting. full of great facts and fab pictures, she has now passed it onto a friend to enjoy as well. Great for any children who may be visiting a hospital in the near future so it's doesn't seem so daunting. Another perfect book from Usborne!!

We are very impressed with this book. My son has really enjoyed exploring it. We have had a few visits to the hospital recently and my son is fascinated with how it shows what he saw there. The lift the flaps have definitely made it very interesting and engaging for my son.

5 stars
Excellent informative book about Hospitals. This book made learning about hospitals really fun for Ivy. She loved opening the flaps and asked lots of questions about the health topics inside of the book. The facts are simple yet detailed enough for children to understand the goings on and terms used in a hospital environment. This will be a really handy book for us as Ivy attends hospital appointments regularly.

My five year old just adores this book. Lately she has become interested in anything medical and learning all the facts about the hospital has been very intriguing to her. She can spend a very long time opening up all the flaps and reading them to herself. We would highly recommend this book to others.
