What’s Going On? by Clare Shaw

So many children are feeling worried and anxious right now, this could help alleviate some of their fears. It has received some wonderful feedback so could be worth a go.

Nurse Dotty Books

Nurse Dotty books aim to help alleviate anxiety around being admitted to hospital for children and their families. 

Each book features nurse Dotty but focuses on a different character who has been admitted to a specific hospital ward, for a specific problem or for a specific procedure or operation. 

Nurse Dotty books are packed with pictures and references to equipment and procedures presented through a rhyming story with cartoon illustrations. This helps to, in a child friendly manner, introduce and explain some of the experiences they will have during theirs or a family members hospital admission.
