Review:

Demystifies the process in a nonthreatening, very interesting way.

A unique way for children to learn... Parents will find it a useful tool to help ease a child's fear.

A great title for kids to read to help take the scariness out of any emergency room ... Recommended.--Susan Black"Library Talk" (11/01/2002)

Seeing the x-ray machines...the light panels, the lead aprons, and other hospital equipment makes the discussion...easier for children to understand.--Lisa Hanson O'Hara "Canadian Materials "

The book is useful as an introduction to these complex medical procedures.--Martha Topol"School Library Journal" (08/01/2002)

Jessica's X-Ray is a unique way for children to learn about their bodies. Parents will find it a useful tool to help ease a child's fear about going to the doctor or hospital.

Seeing the x-ray machines, themselves, and the light panels, the lead aprons, and other hospital equipment makes the discussion of unfamiliar terms easier for children to understand. Recommended.--Lisa Hanson O'Hara "Canadian Materials "

Great preparation for any child wondering about a scheduled X-ray procedure, not to mention parents who could use a tutorial.--Lynne T. Burke"Reading Today" (06/01/2002)

Despite the rudimentary level of the illustrations and the text, the book is useful as an introduction to these complex medical procedures.--Martha Topol"School Library Journal" (08/01/2002)

This is a great title for kids to read to help take the scariness out of any emergency room visits a child may face. It would also be a good resource for a unit on the human skeletal system. Recommended.--Susan Black"Library Talk" (11/01/2002)
