Mrs. Garcia’s Class Visits the Hospital – By Kristy Taylor – Book Review
About the Book:
Mrs. Garcia’s Class Visits the Hospital is the first book written by author and former elementary teacher, Kristy Taylor. The book is an exciting career day adventure with a diverse group of characters where the students in Mrs. Garcia’s class visit the local hospital for their class field trip. While touring the hospital with Mrs. Garcia and Dr. Johnson as their guides, the students learn about over twenty different healthcare careers, and they have lots of fun along the way!
Not only does this book teach about different careers it also helps to explain what goes on in a hospital. This book would be wonderful for a child who has to spend some time in a hospital to not be scared of all the new unknown things. When my sons were born premature, I spent over 2 months in the hospital visiting them every day and you get familiar with the who and whats of a hospital. It makes it less scary and easier to cope. This was a well written book for a child.
