Shots, injections, needles, and vaccines-whatever their purpose, they all hurt. More than half of children in the 6-17 year-old range report a strong fear of needles. Nearly 25% of adults do as well. This book is for those families who cringe at the thought of getting one.

For some children, getting a shot is a major ordeal. Ramped-up anxiety can lead to tantrums, meltdowns, outbursts and even fainting. That 30-second experience can be a nightmare for parents for and nursing staff alike. “Please Explain Vaccines to Me: Because I HATE SHOTS!” by Laurie Zelinger is vital resource will help to improve that dreaded scenario.

“Please Explain Vaccines to Me: Because I HATE SHOTS!” opens with an engaging story for children where rhyme, colorful illustrations and characters of diversity capture a child’s interest as they identify with a girl who has similar fears. The children’s section is followed by a comprehensive guide for parents and caregivers, based on empirical research as well as Dr. Zelinger’s decades of experience as a child psychologist, where she offers information and explicit solutions to help deal with the anxiety surrounding this common medical procedure.

Children will: Identify with the main character and her fear of shots; Enjoy the colorful illustrations and happy story ending; Learn coping mechanisms to deal with frightening situations; Feel supported by their parents who will know how to help; Reduce their anxiety and become more cooperative during medical visits. While Parents and Caregivers will: Understand the reasoning behind the fear of injections; Learn strategies to help their child before and during a medical visit; Be better able to comfort their child.

Made even more urgently necessary for parents and kids now that the Covid-19 vaccines are available for children ages 5-11, “Please Explain Vaccines to Me: Because I HATE SHOTS!” simply must be acquired by and made a part of every family, daycare center, preschool, elementary school, and community library Health/Medicine collections for children ages 5-12. It would be especially useful for physicians working with vaccine reluctant people who have been victims of the on-going and pernicious Anti-Vax misinformation campaigns that are resulting in a continuing Covid epidemic currently raging through the unvaccinated population of the United States and abroad.

Are you ready to discover what lies beyond the ordinary experience of grief?

Sacred Grief offers an intriguing exploration of the far-reaching ripple
effect of our present-day opinions about surviving grief's emotional
roller-coaster and the unnecessary suffering our judgments unconsciously
promote. You'll find comfort in discovering that there's another
dimension to this universal experience--a dimension that fosters trust,
kindness and compassion, peacefully heals, and steadfastly moves you
towards your soul's deepest desires and dreams.
