Bam Bam the Bandage was written to encourage young children to want to use bandages to help heal their scrapes and brusies. Too often children injure themesleves and are afraid the medicine and bandage are going to hurt when put on their skin. This book is meant help parents teach their young children in a light hearted way not to be afraid of medicine and bandages. Bandages can be used to help all sorts of hurts and boo boos and Bam Bam the Bandage is the hero who comes in and saves the day. Bam Bam is there day and night for whenever the child needs him. I recommend parents read the book with their child in conjunction with applying the medicine and bandage needed to the hurt area in order to build an association of Bam Bam being a happy positive character who helps to heal the hurt and changes tears to laughter. Keeping Bam Bam the Bandage book with or near your first aid kit is a great idea. Bam Bam the Bandage will become your child's new friend.
