Description


A lion family navigates their fears of going to the doctor in this adorable and hilariously relatable picture book, Lion Needs a Shot, from award-winning author/illustrator Hyewon Yum.
 
Little lion Luka is NOT worried about a visit to the doctor. He’s NOT scared of getting a shot. And he’s definitely NOT a little lion anymore. R-O-A-R!
 
His younger sister, Lulu, might be nervous for her first checkup—but no need to worry, big brother is here to set a brave example. Step by step, he walks her through what will happen, offering encouragement and holding her hand. But when it’s his turn, on second thought, maybe he doesn’t need to see Dr. Brown today; he’s feeling perfectly fine, after all.
 
This witty, tender story follows two siblings sharing a universal experience together, giving each other courage and realizing that a trip to the doctor’s office isn’t so bad.
“Yum’s sweet illustrations are softly rendered in colored pencils, and their childlike quality is a perfect match for the story. It strikes a reassuring tone for little ones anxious about doctor visits or getting shots, while also demonstrating a loving sibling relationship.” —Booklist
