Going to the Hospital

In his usual tone of sympathetic understanding and gentle reassurance, Mister Rogers discusses the common childhood traumas of hospitalization and grief over the loss of a pet. Large, clear color photographs support the texts. Going to the Hospital follows two appealing preschool age children, a pigtailed black girl and red-headed white boy, as they experience the preliminary procedures of getting an identification bracelet, being examined with various instruments, having blood drawn, and talking with a nurse and doctor, while comforting but straightforward explanations for the procedures are given. Since most of the pictures are posed, no one looks frightened or in pain. No details of surgery or postoperative recovery are shown.
