For children, medical environments can be very intimidating places. However this really doesn't need to be the case. Fear of the unknown is often the cause for this anxiety and I've seen in practice how some simple age appropriate information can make a world of a difference. The goal of this Teddy bear series is to help alleviate this medical related anxiety by showing children what actually happens in various medical scenarios. The series is designed to be read to children in class or even by parents to help children understand the hospital and its staff.
In this story children will meet Teddy on the morning before he has an operation to remove his tonsils. The story will follow Teddy and Daddy Bear as they move through the hospital and will explain the procedure of having an operation to children in an age appropriate manner.
