From an award-winning Mom-Son team featured on the Today Show, Bash and Lucy Fetch Jealousy is a contemporary boy-and-dog book.

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.


Bash and his loyal dog Lucy have a lot of adventures together. Lately Lucy has been helping Bash's soccer team with fun and encouragement. When another team of Special Olympians ask for Lucy's help, Bash isn't so excited to offer Lucy up. Can Bash overcome his jealousy of Lucy helping another team? Bash will have to find a way to  help make everyone play the best that they can.

This was a very sweet book. Bash loves his dog and all the help she gives to the soccer team. When a team of special needs kids ask for Lucy's help though, Bash doesn't deal quite as well. He gets very jealous of all the attention that Lucy gives the other team. After all, Lucy is his dog! This book helps to teach some important lessons about sharing and finding ways that we can help others lives easier. The pictures are bright and cutely drawn. This is a fun book that helps teach some very important lessons.

Book provided for review.
