No Fear

Dylan was not looking forward to getting shots at his upcoming doctor’s visit. His nerves had gotten the best of him and there was only one hope for a tantrum-free visit: his favorite nurse. Nurse Jennie!
Dylan, like many kids his age, was very reluctant to go to the doctor, because he knew it was a day for shots. He tried everything to keep from going but ended up right there, in the lobby, waiting his turn. He really hoped that his favorite nurse would be there.
Only his favorite nurse could calm his fears. Nurse Jennie had a way with children. She could always find a way to shift the focus off of the visit and like magic, fear would disappear. But, would she be there? Would she be too busy with other kids and not have a chance to see Dylan?
Follow along with Dylan as he goes to the doctor. The staff at the doctor’s office has planned a special surprise. Dylan will soon learn that he is not alone and that there is no reason to be fearful of the not-so-scary-shots.
