Will they have to skip the Festival, or will Doctoroo help them in time?
Teaching kids about why they should wear sunscreen
By Rachel Wellner MD
The Doctoroo series is all about teaching kids from pre-school to grade school about basic health issues and maintenance. I use the format of a mystery followed by a global trip Doctoroo and friends take to solve that mystery to enhance the excitement of "catching the culprit" and teaching kids the basic health lesson. My first two books were about good nutrition and hand hygiene respectively and this third book Doctoroo and the Case of the Red Hot Hawaiians is about sun protection.
It's very important for kids to understand why they should wear sunscreen when they are outside. Skin cancer is becoming much more common in young people and sunscreen greatly reduces the risk.
There are two types of sun rays that are harmful to the skin. One is UVA rays, which cause skin aging and skin cancer such as melanoma. And the other is UVB rays, which cause sunburn, cataracts and also contributes to skin cancer. Sunscreens work by blocking and absorbing UV rays. SPF is a measure of how much UVB light the sunscreen can filter out. Dermatologists recommend that you use a sunscreen of SPF of 30 or higher. SPF 30 blocks about 97% of the UV rays.
Doctoroo and the Case of the Red Hot Hawaiians delivers this important message in a fun way – the SPF Hula! I love to deliver my health messages via songs and stories to fun for the kids.
