Baby Bandage and the First Aid family Review

Dr Zelinger's Baby Bandage is another must-have for parents, health professionals, educators, and all who love or care for children. Her endearing characters, engaging and age-appropriate story, and accompanying parent notes help to alleviate the anxiety and fear often associated with childhood injuries while reinforcing the family values of love, empathy, and resiliency.

I absolutely loved Baby Bandage! Dr. Zelinger's characters and fun illustrations take the fear out of 'booboos' and all the things associated with them. In addition, her skillful storytelling weaves in essential lessons on confidence, patience, and recognizing the important roles we all play in this world. Baby Bandage is a wonderful resource for parents and educators alike.

Dr. Zelinger creates a make-believe world where first aid remedies are personified. Through story and illustration, children enter this world and discover that bandages come in all sizes, colors, and shapes and have different and important roles. Young children love covering their ouchies; this story will hold their attention and teach them valuable lessons. As an early childhood educator and a grandma, I recommend Baby Bandage to encourage dialogue about little hurts and booboos.
Barbara Alster, MS, early childhood education teacher

I am delighted to see the word 'Booboos' on the cover. My six-year-old still uses this term for any cuts and bruises and has impeccably transferred the term to name her bandages. She keeps a whole stack of bandages and alcohol wipes for - no matter what - emergencies. This book now sits right below her first-aid kit.
