My Cartoon Imagination at the Hospital
Do you know a little child who is sick or has been sick in the hospital recently? What about a child who is afraid to go to the doctor's office? If yes, then my book, My Cartoon Imagination at the Hospital, may ease their fears by explaining what they may experience or have already experienced in a fun and imaginative way! This sequel to my first book imparts the idea of how a healthy mind can aid children in coping with the nervousness associated with entering hospitals. There is a medical vocabulary list with definitions which is easy to understand by young readers from ages 6 - 10. There is also a question and answer (Q&A) section in the back of the book explaining the medical terms used in the story. I have included a few of the actual questions that I had to answer while caring for some of my youngest patients. For the very young children from ages 3 - 5, they will definitely enjoy the pictures in both books and would benefit from having an adult read these whimsical stories out loud to them! By reading out loud to them, it will help your child learn word recognition and comprehension. It will also show them how to form sentences together through poetry and rhyming. I used to read aloud to both my sons when they were very young so by the time they were old enough to attend grade school, they were already reading and recognizing a large vocabulary list of words! I believe in challenging young minds and giving them more difficult words and definitions to help their minds grow which will hopefully motivate them to continue studying and learning. Through research, I have learned that a young child, and even an infant, can first learn with word recognition through rhymes, colorful pictures, and songs even before the age of five. My hope is that it will motivate them to continue to read and explore, no matter how challenging, and that it will prepare them for a successful future! Both books are very educational using SIGHT words sprinkled throughout with a little inspirational message at the end of each story. Thank you for taking this journey with me and remember to keep your imagination alive!
