New experiences and places can be scary for young children. The adventures of little bears Jim and Betty will help them relate to new situations and provide the opportunity for friendly discussion about what will happen in the new environment. In Jim goes to Hospital, poor little bear Jim has an ear ache and has to go to the doctors and then into the hospital, where we meet Nurse Jo and surgeon Mr Bone, for an operation to make him better. The book features delightful illustrations and photographs of teddy bears, providing lots to look at and talk about. The story is an ideal starting point for young children and adults to discuss first experiences and the simple text means slightly older children can read the stories themselves. Also featuring a glossary, index and tes for parents and caregivers.
