When My Dad Went to the Hospital
Written by Sabrina Wiggins
Illustrated by Joshua Yemi

Told from the perspective of a loving daughter, When My Dad Went to the Hospital: What to Expect When Someone You Love Gets Hurt is the story of a courageous daughter and her siblings who learn to deal with a family tragedy.

The young narrator adores her dad, and she enjoys spending summers with him. Her mom and dad don’t live in the same house. Serena is a fun and loving daughter who loves to play with her brother Benny and her friends. She always looked forward to her summer vacation. One day, things in her world suddenly changed after her dad was involved in a shooting that puts him in the hospital. With her mom, her brother, and sister, she learns the true meaning of family and love—a candid, uplifting story about trauma, grief, love, and courage.


Sabrina Wiggins was raised in Summerville, Georgia, and she's been telling stories ever since. Although she spent most of her early years in the U.S. Navy and now working for the federal government, she finally realized her real love was writing stories for young people that blossom in her imagination. Sabrina is the author of Off to Washington, which was published in 2018. Sabrina truly believes in the power of stories to change children's world, especially her grandson Aiden (whom she named her publishing company after). These days Sabrina lives in Maryland with her three-year-old grandson Aiden and plans to keep writing visionary stories for kids and young adults forever.
