The Best Medical Books for Kids
This blog uses affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.
Hospitals and even the doctor’s office can be scary places for anyone, especially children. Not to mention the dentist…
Reading books about medical situations helps prepare kids for what to expect, whether they are a patient themselves or a visitor when a family member is ill or injured. These books help open up discussions about difficult topics and ease kids’ minds with foreknowledge of the environment surrounding a hospital, clinic, or examination room.
Some facilities will even allow you to come for a tour or field trip. Our homeschool group has visited a dentist, veterinarian, and eye doctor, as well as a children’s hospital and nursing home. These experiences have been great for preparing our kids for life.
You may have a budding health care provider on your hands once your kids discover the wonderful work these community helpers provide!
