Sweet Dreams at the Hospital
Dulces Suenos en el Hospital
A Coloring and Activity Book is available for children about to undergo anesthesia and surgery. Put your child's mind at ease with this wonderfully written and illustrated story!
Written by Marjorie Stamler Bergemann, CRNA, a longtime AANA member, and illustrated by Karen Monckton, the 27-page book is filled with pictures to color, plus a connect the dots, a "hospital adventure" maze, and a picture-word match game. Two pages of introductory material for parents include a brief biography of the author, information about the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists and Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists, and a discussion on the purpose of the coloring book. Although the theme of the coloring and activity book is based on a hospital visit, the information about anesthesia and surgery is applicable to most surgical settings. The coloring and activity book is available in both English and Spanish.
Sweet Dreams at the Hospital is available to healthcare professionals as well as the general public. Copies of the book are available through our external supplier, DFI. They are a separate purchase at the DFI website. Please finish your other purchases on the AANA website before you transfer to the DFI website to place your order. Or you may download Sweet Dreams at the Hospital in English or in Spanish.
