Summary

Going to the Hospital is a very simple book -- only sixteen pages long. The first eleven pages look at various scenes a child may see in the hospital. "Do you know what a hospital is? A hospital is a place where mothers and fathers and doctors and nurses work together to take special care of children like you."

The next four pages are made up of activities for young people to complete while in the hospital or once they return home. Included are a dot-to-dot puzzle of a teddy bear in a suitcase and a page about a puppet made by Daniel Striped Tiger.

The book's final page wraps up with a heartfelt message from Mister Rogers.
