¡Ay, ¡cómo pincha!
All kids are afraid of going to see the doctor, but Simon finds creative ways to avoid the ordeal and get over his fears. He first becomes a strong lion, too healthy to need medicine. He then becomes a turtle, too slow to go anywhere. He later becomes an alligator, his skin too thick for a needle… When Simon comes to and realizes where he really is, he has already received the shot, and it did not hurt one bit. Simon is so brave! This is a great read-aloud about childhood fears and the power of imagination.
