9780142401330: Good-bye Tonsils! (Picture Puffin Books)

There's only one way to make Juliana's nonstop sore throats go away, and that's to remove her tonsils. Dr. Ward and Juliana's parents help Juliana understand what will happen when she's in the hospital. By the time she has her surgery, she knows just what to expect. And when she returns to school, Juliana tells her friends, "The worst thing about having your tonsils out is that you can only do it once!"

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2-4-Juliana has had a series of sore throats, and her doctor decides to remove her tonsils. She works up to the pending procedure by reading books and talking with a friend who has had multiple operations. The night before the ordeal, the family celebrates with a party. The authors work slowly through the day of the tonsillectomy, breaking down the schedule of events and acknowledging the child's fear. Readers follow her through recovery; she leaves the hospital in the afternoon and mends at home for a few days. The story ends on a high note with Juliana telling her friends about the experience, including the ice cream she was able to eat as well as being afraid. The authors include all the necessary information regarding a tonsillectomy in a comforting yet straightforward story. "A Note to Parents" lists basic guidelines for preparing a child for surgery. Mets's full-color illustrations aptly reflect the mood of the text. Most reassuring is the visual connection between Juliana and her father just before she undergoes anesthesia. Not as many children have their tonsils removed today as in the past, but this book is a good choice for those who face this experience.

From Booklist:

Ages 4-8. When Juliana Hatkoff was almost five, she learned that she needed to have her tonsils removed. Despite her doctor's careful explanation (and the promise that she could eat lots of ice cream afterward), the prospect of the operation was scary. So Juliana and her father, Craig, decided to write a journal about the experience. This picture-book record demystifying the procedure is the result; its age-appropriate explanations will reassure children readying themselves for surgery. Juliana's doctor shows her what tonsils look like and why unhealthy ones should be taken out, and Juliana recalls that, in order to work through her fears, she read about Curious George and Madeline (both of whom go to the hospital). A "Note to Parents" offers tips to families, stressing the importance of preoperation preparation. Pastel-and-pencil illustrations created on a computer have a softly brushed quality that tempers the subject matter and makes up somewhat for somewhat awkwardly rendered figures and expressions.
