Press reviews

“It's beautifully engaging with so much to see on every spread and with lots of flaps to open on every page. We love it.”
“a fascinating insight into what really goes on in a hospital [...] a hugely important book for any child who might be visiting ill relatives or need to go into hospital themselves.”
“The book sensitively and engagingly explains how hospitals are places where ill or injured people go to get better. [...] this is a reassuring and helpful guide for both children and parents. ”
“The lively and colourful illustrations are packed with detail to absorb and discuss, and they are well captioned. [...] It's a well presented and reassuring book, which gives just enough information to put young children's minds at rest.”
“Care has been taken to include an inclusive and diverse staff and series of patients, with difficult terms explained in clear and concise language – perfect for young readers”
