My three-year old daughter is having surgery in three weeks in
Boston. We got her a book called 'Franklin Goes To The Hospital'.
It's a fantastic book to get for children who are going to have
surgery and stay in the hospital. We purchased it from Waldenbooks,
but I'm sure any book store should carry it.
