WILMINGTON, NC, February 09, 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's Head Is Itching'. 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 his body and to help eliminate fear of diseases. This series is also available in French (Felix et Boubou) in paperback, Kindle and PDF versions.
In this exciting adventure, Felix and his magical medical instruments hunt down Maya's head lice. Booboo, the captain of the instruments, tells Maya all about head lice. This book will help children understand the issues surrounding head lice, including how modern medicine cures the head lice problem. A quiz at the end of the book challenges the child's reading skills.
"My true intentions regarding writing this 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 addition to head lice, other subjects covered in the series include gastroenteritis, broken bones, allergies, otitis, the human body, vaccinations 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.
Dr. Nicole's books have won numerous international awards. A full listing of the awards can be found on her website.
'Maya's Head Is Itching' has received 5 stars from readers and reviewers. Vernita Taylor, in a Readers Favorite review, stated, "This book is so wonderfully presented because it takes the child on a journey into learning about head lice and all of the steps and processes that go into ridding one of head lice. I see this book as if Dr. Audet herself was sitting down and explaining the process of head lice to the child. This book offers a great solution for helping the child to not only understand, but to share with their friends. As a part of the Felix and Booboo Series, your child will never stop learning about the various things that the body experiences - from chickenpox and earache to feeling sick. Add this book to your library; you won't regret it."
Dr. Nicole also received recognition as one of Quebec's Top 10 Women by the Maman Dion Foundation. The Maman Dion foundation was founded by Therese Tanguay-Dion, known as Maman Dion, a television personality and the Celine Dion's mother. The Maman Dion Foundation is an educational foundation that provides support to underprivileged children in the form of clothing, eyewear and school supplies.
