This story will help kids understand that some things about themselves can be changed and others will always be with them, but what matters is how they choose to think about these things. In addition to its valuable lesson, this charming story will remind all readers, both young and old, of what can be done with the childlike belief in what is possible.

Little Saje was five years old when bumps appeared all over her face. Her mom and dad took her to the doctor who said her only choices were to take medicine or wait and see if they would go away on their own.
But Saje's dad (Dr. Wayne Dyer) knew a secret. He knew the power of the mind to heal our bodies and when he told little Saje that she could talk to her bumps, she did just that! And guess what? The bumps left!
In this adorably illustrated book, Dr. Wayne Dyer and his daughter Saje tell the true story of what actually happened to Saje when she was a little girl and teach children that if something is bugging them, they can change it with their thoughts - and even more importantly, this story teaches that don't have to let something have power over them.
A cute story, and also a very powerful one. If you are looking for a tool to teach your child how to use the power of thoughts, this is a good one.
It's written for children 4-10 years old, but anyone of any age could learn from this story.
Good-bye Bumps is available on Amazon.

I love the message in the story that helps children understand that sometimes things that bother them about themselves can be changed while other times they need to embrace their uniqueness. Even though we may not be able to change a situation, we have the power and choice on how to let our limitations and challenges affect us. I love the saying, "I choose to be happy!" Sometimes that can be a very difficult thing, but I think that it is important to teach our children to think positively about themselves and to know that they are each special and unique individuals. As adults, we would be smart to have the same thought process. My daughters and I love the quote in our family "We are daughters of God, who loves us, and we love him" (you could easily substitute the word daughters for sons). God made each of us unique and we need to embrace our uniqueness.
In the back of the book Dr. Wayne and Saje Dayer have written a letter to parents. I love the part where they say "Yes, there are some things that none of us can change or make go away, but taking the focus off of "it" really does make a difference".
I made this printable poster for you to go along with the quote. Simply click on the picture and click on "save as" to save a copy for yourself. Please remember that this poster is for personal or classroom use only. Thanks!
After reading Good-bye, Bumps!, with my children, we were able to have a wonderful discussion. I love it when we find books like this one, where the story is engaging, the message is powerful, the pictures are lovely, and you can have great dialogues with your kids. I asked my daughters what they thought of this book and they gave it two thumbs up. I would give it two thumbs up as well with a 5 out of 5 star rating!
