Reviews - What do customers think about Kevin Goes to the Hospital (The on My Way Books) (The on MyWay Books)?
Great book to explain difficult issue Dec 21, 2007
I had purchased this book about 4 yrs ago when my then 3 year old was having an operation. It was a good (very simple) way to explain a complicated situation. Although Kevin fell and hurt his head (no operation), it still helped to explain to my 3 yo that Kevin went to the hospital and was OK. He got better and went home. Simple illustrations and text that I still can recite word for word today. It's hard to find preschool books on hospitalizations/operations so this was a good find. I highly recommend it for those 2-4. Probably too simple for kids any older than that.
Good Book for Boo-Boos May 25, 2004
No elaborate illustrations. No fancy words. Just colorful drawings and large, easy-to-read text simply told from a child's point of view. This sturdy board book is perfectly sized for small hands. Kevin Goes to the Hospital was the first "On My Way" book we read. It was a big hit! When my 2.5-year-old daughter fell and scraped her knee, I don't know what made her feel better the most: the hug, the Band-Aid, or the reading of this story. The vocabulary is fairly simple, so it can also be used as an early reader book for your child who is just learning to read. I recommend ALL the books in this series.
