Abstract
It's another busy day at the hospital! Meet doctors and nurses, ride in an ambulance, and discover the magic of medicine in this nonfiction story for kids.
This book is perfect for any child who is nervous about a trip to the hospital. Dr. Christle Nwora takes readers behind the scenes to meet the incredible people who keep you healthy, from surgeons to mental health therapists. Dr. Nwora also explains the science behind how things work, from X-rays to operating theaters.
Set over the course of one day, you?ll follow different patients through their trip to the hospital, including:
- A couple having a new baby
- A boy getting a cast for his broken arm
- A woman on her way to have an operation
As you turn the pages of this book, illustrated by Ginnie Hsu, marvel at the way hospital staff work together―see who prepares the food in the cafeteria, what goes on in the laundry room, and what doctors chat about during their coffee break.
Once you've read this book you'll realize hospitals are full of heroes!

Sophie is a strong and brave little girl who talks about how she had cancer at a very young age. Sophie takes you on a journey of her time at the hospital, her battle with cancer and a brief period of her life after, in remission. She is excited to share her story with other children to help them be strong and brave as well.
Safia (Sophie) was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia at the age of 4 and has been in remission since August 1994. Safia always says, "It's because of BC Children's Hospital that I am alive." Safia wrote this book to help other children who are fighting the same battle she was at a young age. Proceeds from this book will be donated to the Michael Cuccione Childhood Cancer Research Program at BC Children's Hospital.

Abstract
L'adolescence et la puberté sont des caps qui peuvent se révéler difficiles, voire très douloureux à aborder. L'auteure, Pauline Aubry, après une période de rébellion pure et dure, a elle-même été victime de crises d'angoisse aiguës nécessitant l'hospitalisation. Aujourd'hui, elle va mieux et a décidé de « replonger » dans cette période critique en organisant un stage BD à l'attention de jeunes recevant des soins de longue durée dans un département de pédopsychiatrie. Elle en a tiré Les Mutants, un peuple d'incompris, un documentaire qui fut pré-publié dans l'excellente revue XXI.
L'album suit les cas d'Annabelle, Adrien, Pierre, Alice, Mathieu et quelques autres. Tous ont en commun un énorme mal de vivre et n'arrivent pas à trouver leur place : plus enfants, ils ne sont pas encore tout à fait des adultes. Ce spleen traditionnel est partagé, à un niveau ou un autre, par tout un chacun, mais dans ces cas présents, s'avère insupportable et nécessite un suivi personnalisé. Aubry illustre avec application et précision ces diagnostics. Elle présente également, avec ce qu'il faut d'autodérision, sa propre expérience et introduit les grands courants théoriques à ce sujet. L'ensemble est agréable à parcourir, car le ton général reste très léger et même drôle (l'univers médical est rempli d'anecdotes d'un humour noir aux vertus souvent cathartiques), malgré la gravité de son propos.

Abstract
Kids of all ages have some important questions about how their bodies work?and why their parents and other adults have some strong ideas on what needs to get done every day in order to stay healthy. Children often hear:
"No more screen time!"
"Eat your vegetables!"
"You can?t have cookies for dinner!"
"You need to take your medicine!"
"Wash your hands! With soap!"
"It?s getting late! Get ready for bed!!"
In this book, Dr. Nina L. Shapiro embarks on an amazing journey through the body as it gets fed, protected, exercised, cleaned, energized, and rested. Each chapter provides kids with age-appropriate explanations and illustrations that address their very good questions about their bodies and health with solid (and fun!) science-based answers. By receiving an in-depth understanding of what it means to be healthy, strong, clean, rested, and energized, kids will soon be able to make smart decisions on their own.
The human body is incredible, and the science behind how our bodies work, how the world affects our bodies, and how our bodies affect the world around us is pretty cool, too.
