Harry Goes to the Hospital
A Story for Children About What it’s Like to be in the Hospital
As Harry left the hospital, his mom and dad said they were proud of him for being such a brave boy. Harry smiled and felt very proud, too. He realized that a hospital doesn’t have to be a big, scary place. Being a doctor is a good job, Harry thought. As long as no one throws up on you!
Harry gets sick and he has to go to the hospital. But he’s never been there and he’s scared!
There are lots of new people, he gets poked with needles, and he has to stay the night in a strange place. But with his parents’ comfort and the help of lots of doctors, nurses, and especially his stuffed rabbit Barney, Harry learns that the hospital doesn’t have to be a big, scary place.
