WILMINGTON, NC, March 03, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Multi-award-winning children's book author Dr. Nicole has announced the release of a new book in the Felix and Booboo Series, 'Maya Visits Her Doctor: Vaccination'. Vaccinations are a very big issue for young children. The new book is one of a series of eight books that address medical issues and make them understandable for young children. The goal is to increase the child's understanding of her body and to help eliminate fear of diseases and medical procedures. This series is also available in French (Felix et Boubou) in paperback, Kindle and PDF versions.
In this book, Felix's sister Maya was afraid to go to the doctor for a vaccine. Fortunately, Felix, assisted by Booboo and his magical doctor's bag, help her get over her fears. Lucky Maya. She receives a beautiful princess sticker for her collection. Young readers of this book will find out all the secrets of a medical visit and vaccination.
"My true intentions regarding writing Felix and Booboo series are to inspire children to read, to set their imaginations free and to encourage good decision-making regarding health, safety and critical thinking," Dr. Nicole stated. "Writing children's books is a way for me to give back and be a positive resource to the community. It is a way that I can positively express myself while having some fun and at the same time be a positive role model for both children and caregivers. I hope that my books inspire children to set their minds free and work to make the world a better place. In the book Maya Visits Her Doctor, my intention was to explain the annual medical visit and pre-school vaccination. I hope it may help parents and their care givers to prepare their children before visiting their doctor."
In addition to vaccinations, other subjects covered in the series include gastroenteritis, broken bones, head lice, allergies, the human body, otitis and chickenpox. All of the books in the series can be used by educators and medical professionals to help kids understand that these types of conditions are normal and are not to be feared or avoided.
In the traditions of Walt Disney and Dr. Seuss, Dr. Nicole breathes life into inanimate objects and wildly entertaining characters that engage children in powerful ways. Through the parent/child interaction, her works develop a love for reading while helping children develop the most important skill of all - critical thinking. If a child can master the art of critical thinking, nearly everything else falls into place.
