Welcome to the LKCMedicine Children’s Health Collection


“Children’s books provide enjoyment and education, informing children’s understanding of the world and their place in it. Books about going to the doctor are used both for entertainment and to help prepare children for forthcoming clinical encounters.” – (Rao and Smith, 2014)


About this collection
