Look Inside A Hospital

Publisher: Usborne

Review

This fantastic board book series from Usborne lets us explore a hospital and some of its busy departments. Each page shows a different area of the hospital and explains about some of the things that happen there.

With little flaps to lift for extra information and views behind doors, curtains, machines and even inside bodies, this book is absolutely filled with things to learn about hospitals. The illustrations are neat and stylish, showcasing how busy hospitals can be but with enough space and room to show everything clearly.

Care has been taken to include an inclusive and diverse staff and series of patients, with difficult terms explained in clear and concise language – perfect for young readers, keen to learn more about hospitals and medical staff. Covering topics from "Mothers and babies", "Operations", "Scans and tests", "Staying overnight", "Emergencies" and "Outpatients", this simple and well-constructed book could provide a reassuring guide to young people before their first visit to a hospital and is great fun to explore for any budding doctors and nurses.

This book is part of Usborne’s excellent Look Inside series that includes books about the body, airports, space, pyramids, farms, food and cars.
