Teddy Bear Hospital

24 Jun

While the Teddy Bear Hospital has no direct correlation to children’s books it does embody a creative approach to teaching children to overcome their fear of hospitals. The Teddy Bear Hospital is a global initiative pairing up medical school students with 3-7 year olds. Future doctors get to practice consultations while the children are given healthy habit tips and are exposed to hospitals in a safe and warm environment. Check out the Leicester Teddy Bear Hospital site for an extensive look at the program with several pictures.

CHALLENGE: Think of things that give children anxiety, and now come up with a creative solution (a book) that will help them overcome it.
