Make going to the doctor fun

Posted By Susie L On September 29, 2009 @ 9:03 am In Photo Book Ideas | 1 Comment

Today I came upon an adorable little book made by a nursing student to help kids overcome their fears of the doctor’s office. Where was this book two weeks ago when I took my 5-year-old in for his shots!

Check out Sophie Goes to the Doctor [1] and see how it inspires you.

I know there are plenty of books about going to the doctor, but, wouldn’t it be great if the pictures were actually of the child’s pediatrician? And the actual doctor’s office. Even the actual child! And then I got to thinking, maybe we could turn it into a project that we do as a kind of distraction. My son loves to take pictures, so maybe the next time we’re at the doctors, he gets to take the camera and document his experience. And then we put it together as a photo book for my younger daughter to help her get through the experience. Stories are such powerful learning vehicles for kids. What a treat to be able to make them personal.

Here’s another great find. What kind of Doctor will you be? [2] a sweet kid’s book about different kinds of doctors.
