Descrizione

In KOKO BEAR'S BIG EARACHE, a read-aloud story for young children and their parents, popular parenting author Vicki Lansky uses an adorable character, KoKo, the unisex little bear, to provide reassurance and comfort for the child as well as helpful information for the parents.

After KoKo wakes at night with another big earache, Dr. Polar recommends the insertion of tiny ear tubes to prevent any hearing loss. This means day surgery at the hospital and naturally KoKo is afraid. In this delightfully illustrated little story, children will share KoKo's discovery that the hopital is a great place to feel well again.

In addition to KoKo's story, the book contains many useful tips for parents anxious to minimize their child's fears, plus essential information for insuring a child's speedy recovery. A section at the back of the book features easy-to-understand answers to parents' most commonly asked questions. This is also helpful to healthcare professionals who address parental concerns.

Even temporary hearing loss, we now know, can seriously affect learning and speech development in young children and also cause behavioral and discipline problems.
