Raymond Brain has the unfortunate task of announcing to his fellow residents of the Body Village that flu season is returning. To make things worse he has to tell everyone that this year they are going to get a flue shot.
This announcement is not received well by this friends. They don’t like getting shots. After Raymond reminds them of how bad they felt when they got the flu last year, they begin to be more open to the idea of getting a flue shot.
Nurse Vaccine will show children that while getting a flue shot does hurt a little, the temporary pain is much better than getting sick.
Available on Amazon.
I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All of the opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
Nurse Vaccine is a My Body Village book. These children’s books are about different parts of the body because it “takes a village to make a healthy child.”
Nurse Vaccine is coming to give everyone in the village a shot and they’re all a little apprehensive until Raymond Brain explains why it is important to get a vaccine. They’re still not thrilled about getting the shot but they agree that it would be better than getting sick.
In this fun and colorful book, Nurse Vaccine will help children understand that getting a shot only hurt for a few seconds and prevents them from getting sick for much longer.
