While I was waiting to have an MRI of my knee done, “Dr. Mint” discovered a curious board book in the waiting room. What on earth is a board book doing here? I thought to myself. We weren’t at a children’s library! We were waiting in a sterile waiting area for an enormous machine to scan my insides.

Dr. Mint held it up for me to see.

I was truly baffled by this book. I wanted to laugh and cry at the same time. I mean, it was really strange that someone actually took the time to make a children’s book about MRIs. And it is also sad that there is a need for a children’s book about MRIs. It means that kids are actually getting MRIs.

What are your feelings on the MRI board book?
