Ah-choo! The pirate crew is down with the Dread Pirate Flu. Sent ashore to the doctor’s office, these stouthearted sailors tremble at the thought of shots, medicine, and saying “aahh.” Can the kindly doctor and her no-nonsense nurse help them find ways to manage their fears and get healthy again? Because if they do, they’ll end up with something even better than a treasure chest!
The humorous, rollicking rhymes of Pirate Flu (and What to Do) will delight and reassure children who feel anxious about trips to the doctor. Recognizing themselves in this piratey band they will learn that being brave means facing your fears even when you’re scared.
