From an award-winning Mom-Son team featured on the Today Show, Bash and Lucy Fetch Jealousy is a contemporary boy-and-dog book. Bash’s dog, Lucy, helps coach his soccer team, and Lucy leads the team to the championships. But Bash is overcome with jealousy when Lucy enchants a team of Special Olympics kids who say they want her to coach their team. Can Bash overcome his jealousy and learn to share Lucy with kids who say they need her? This is Book Two in the Bash and Lucy series, following Bash and Lucy Fetch Confidence, a Mom’s Choice Silver Award winner and finalist, USA Best Book Awards. Co-Author Michael Cohn, age 6, has appeared on the Today Show, on SiriusXM Radio, in Disney’s Babble, in The Oregonian and other media.
I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.
Bash was on a soccer team and his dog, Lucy, was their coach. Lucy encouraged the children, made them laugh, and liked to give them kisses. Once in a while, Bash got a little jealous but he got over it pretty quickly.
Then, the day before their championship, a boy named Tristan asked if Lucy could coach his team at their championships. He was on a Special Olympics team but Bash didn’t want to share Lucy with another team. When he wasn’t looking, Lucy ran off and they found her helping Tristan’s team. Bash was jealous but after watching her interact with the children, he finally decided it would be best for everyone to share Lucy.
This is a cute story with cute pictures, written for young children. It teaches about jealousy as well as integrating children with disabilities into the story. I think children would enjoy Bash & Lucy Fetch Jealousy, especially the way Lucy is depicted. I like how the authors got ideas for this story from classes in different elementary schools.
