Jake welcomes his Kindergarten checkup with Dr. Dee but fears the necessary and inevitable shots. His tag-along sister Chloe increases his fear at each step of the exam until her surprising empathy helps Jake muster the courage to complete the checkup. The two head home, Jake Kindergarten-bound, both deliciously-rewarded. Included: easy-to-understand explanations of a checkup’s elements and the accompanying medical tools and Tips for Parents—Preparing for Your Child’s Well Child Checkup and Vaccines.
