Synopsis: From an award-winning mother-son team featured on the Today Show, Bash and Lucy Fetch Jealousy, a Mom's Choice Silver Award winner, is a contemporary boy-and-dog book for children age 4 to 9. 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. Visit the authors at www.BashAndLucy.com.
Lucy coaches Bash's soccer team and leads them to a victorious season, but when another team wants to borrow Lucy, Bash doesn't know how to react. Lucy, however, is an insightful pup and knows what she must do. Can Bash accept her decision?
This story is so precious. I love how the authors address Bash's overwhelming feelings of jealousy when he's asked to share Lucy with another team. Jealousy is such a difficult emotion for children to recognize, even though they may experience the feeling often. Lucy teaches Bash that her desire to help others in no way lessons the love she has for him, which in turn is a timeless message for readers.
The watercolor illustrations are simply amazing and add to the the story's charm.
I highly recommend reading Bash and Lucy Fetch Jealousy. Available on Amazon.
