Brave Jake is a short story written by Michelle Spray. Brave Jake is a picture book that should be read to children before visiting the doctor. Brave Jake is easy to read and a great length for busy pediatric doctor’s offices, waiting areas, and for those patients who may need a little encouragement. Using bright and captivating illustrations, the author shows children there is no need to be afraid of needles. This book works for children who will be getting vaccinated or children with juvenile diabetes.
However, it can also be used to explain to children that some children go to the doctor more often for treatment. What caught my attention was the diversity of the children in the different scenes. There is also a sister version of the book called Brave Kayla.
