Baby-preschool 28 pages Kane/Miller September 2002 Hardcover    

Kevin Goes to the Hospital, a pint-sized book with a brightly illustrated cover that is smooth to the touch, is a great way to teach a young child about what they might experience if they are injured and need some extra tender loving care.

After Kevin falls and hits his head, he has to check into the hospital. His friend visits with a present, he meets other children his age, and his grandmother sends him a card to wish him well. Just as he realizes that the hospital is not such a terrible place to be (especially if it helps you heal), Kevinís doctor informs him that he can go home.

The target audience for this book is definitely a young child, and the illustrations add to the storyís appeal since they look as if they could have been drawn by a child of the same age. While I would not necessarily select this book for storytime on an ordinary day, I would likely reach for it if I ever had to tend to a sick or injured child in need of medical attention.
