Luca Lashes Visits Mommy in the Hospital gives you what you’re expecting. The title character experiences a hospital visit to a loved one from the eyes of a young child. I appreciated that it provides detailed yet broad descriptions of what someone could expect if they’re seeing someone who is ill, from the nurses adjusting the patient to the various IVs and machines. The images are a blend of hand-drawn illustrations and computer-generated illustrations. The result is that they’re crisp and sharp, but have a gentle touch.
I definitely recommend this for young readers who are facing a hospital visit. That can be frightening, but this book is a great intro to what they’ll see and hear.
