This is the first Bash and Lucy book that we have read and we really enjoyed it. I loved the way Lisa Cohn made it easy to talk to my four year old about jealousy and different ways to handle the emotions that go with it. My daughter was astounded when I told her that a little boy helped write the book.
I found the book to be well written and inspiring, a story that can help my daughter overcome the negative feelings associated with jealousy.

This is the first book I have read from Lisa Cohn and I am impressed how she used the characters to help small children understand what being a service dog is. My children were well entertained through the book and enjoyed the illustrations. I highly recommend this book to kids ages pre-k- 3rd grade. 5 kids fangs from PRATR!

Book Two in the Bash and Lucy Picture Book series is a charming picture book for children in the early elementary grades. In this adventure, Lucy is the mascot of Bash’s soccer team; her support has helped lead them to the team championship. Lucy delights the crowd with her antics dressed in her baseball uniform and cap. But on the day of the championship, another team led by a boy named Tristan asks that they allow Lucy to guide their team to a win in the Special Olympics. Bash a

Lisa Cohn, along with her 6 year old son Michael, have written a book that is not only fun and amusing but teaches children valuable lessons about jealousy, compassion and sharing. I love the use of a service dog specifically trained to help people who have disabilities.

The story revolves around the jealousy Fetch feels when Lucy disappears to help a soccer team comprised of children with special needs. Children will learn about the special abilities these dogs have to provide help, loyalty and

A cute entertaining kid story!

I read Bash and Lucy Fetch Jealousy to my daughter who loves dogs. She really enjoyed Lucy's (the dog) playfulness and desire to bring smile to the kids faces. In the story, Lucy goes off to entertain another soccer team with her licks, love and playfulness. Bash (the main character and Lucy's owner) gets jealous.

My daughter could relate because she sometimes gets that kid jealousy pet feeling when our dog Baxter (another kid picture book dog) pays more attention t

Bash's dog Lucy coaches his team and does a really good job of it. Bash sometimes gets jealous when he has to share her though. When another team comes asking to borrow her it's the last thing Bash wants to do, but his heart wins over his jealousy.

Having a daughter that is visually impaired this book really hit home with me. I was touched on so many levels. It was nice to see a children's book that discussed service dogs, their jobs, and how they help children.

Bash and Lucy Fetch Jealousy is an absolutely delightful tale about a young boy who learns the importance of sharing.

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 t

Who hasn't felt a twinge of jealousy when their best friend pays attention to someone else?
No one wants to feel left out. Bash already shares Lucy with his whole team.
When a new kid shows up, a kid who already has a dog, and says HIS team needs Lucy's special coaching skills,
I can't blame Bash for feeling a little upset.

The illustrations in this book are fun and beautiful.
This book is cute on many levels.

This was a cute story about a little boy named Bash and his dog named Lucy. Another sports team really needs Lucy to come and coach their team to victory but Bash doesn't want to let Lucy do it. He was too jealous. Lucy ran away after the other boy and Bash and his friends decide to act as Lucy would so they could try to find her. Bash soon finds Lucy coaching the "special" sports team and eventually comes to the conclusion that the "special" team needed Lucy more than his team did. It was cute, ...more

Lucy is an extremely playful, light-hearted and kind character. Plus, she's a dog! She doesn't see the flaws in the children she coaches. Instead, she sees where she is most needed and can be of the most use.

She does her best to uplift a team of Special Olympics soccer players, and Bash (Lucy's owner) gets green with envy. The evil eye of jealousy comes out in Bash.

Throughout the story filled with beautiful illustrations, Bash has to learn to share Lucy's wonderfulness with others. Bash and Lu

A sweet little story about sharing something you love to help others. It’s a moral tale about the wrench of sharing the affections of one of mans best friends, in this case a dog called Lucy, with others.
It covers angst that can come with sharing something you love and, without being too moralistic, it explains to littleuns that sharing can be rewarding, even if it’s tough.
Kids will sympathies with Bash for worrying about losing the affections of his best friend, whilst loving Lucy for her natu

This book is great for children as it teaches life lessons. Bash gets jealous when Lucy wants to help t\coach a Special Olympics team. Bash learns to see the needs of others and to share. Bash also gets a lesson that everyone is different and some children have special needs. The group of children come together as a team and Lucy is the coach.

I enjoyed this book that I received from the giveaways. I feel that it is a good way to introduce special needs to young children but does not go into a lot of detail. This book does not point at the other team going "Their different!" It instead goes, "They have a few things different, but are doing the same thing as us."

As always, I read this with my 2 1/2 year old son. He liked the pictures a lot. Our son gets jealous of our cat when the cat is asleep on our laps. So I was able to use this story to help him understand what he was feeling. I don't know if he got it yet. But I'll keep reading it to him until he does. =)

I opened the first page and simply had to smile. The joy that dog Lucy's presence induces on Bash and his soccer team was very tangible in those first words and illustrations. Lucy isn't only a pet, she's Bash's soccer team's trainer...of sorts. This idea alone will draw kids in.

Firstly, I enjoyed seeing a book with soccer and loved the way this sport theme was worked in without being the main theme. This is something not seen often enough. With Lucy, the playful dog, added in, this book is sure

Lucy, an extraordinary canine, is a great soccer coach. She is also able to detect when humans need a bit of attention to succeed in what they do. She is noticed by a special needs child who wants her help so his team can win too.

Children reading this book will recognize the feelings of jealousy they sometimes get when they have to share their toys, room, clothes, and maybe even parents. It is not always an easy thing to deal with. This book allows those feelings but also shows children that som

"Bash and Lucy Fetch Jealousy"
This is one picture book that should be read by all children regardless of age and by their parents. I found the story of the lovable Dog Lucy and the charming boy Bash so endearing, sweet and emotional, tugging at my heart strings that I recommend it to everyone.

The crux of the story is about sharing and helping others; cheering and encouraging kids in similar situations. Sharing love is the simplest way of increasing love; it comes back to you more than double.

This is the first book I have read from Lisa Cohn who is the winner of the Mom’s Choice Silver Award, and the Focuses on Helping Others, in Spite of Jealous award. This book is jammed packed with wonderful illustrations, vivid water color illustrations and a beautiful message to wrap it up in. I fell in love with this book. It is something that any child can relate to and has felt on several occasions.

This book is about Bash’s dog; Lucy, who is the coach of his soccer team. The illustrations are great and colorful, but the plot is hard to follow. Why is Bash jealous of the other team, when Tristen asked him to lend him Lucy to coach his team? Bash has been already jealous of his own teammates because he doesn't want to share Lucy’s attention, so why throwing a pointless jealousy reaction toward the other team, when as per what Tristen has told him about his team, Bash knows the other kids wil ...more

Bash and Lucy is a book for youngsters about the love of a dog and sharing. Along with a great story there are delightful illustrations to accompany.
The main theme of the story is sharing, and the examples are wonderful. While Bash is having a hard time with having others enjoy his dog Lucy, he ends up with more and more wanting her.
So cute! Who wouldn’t want a loving talented dog for a coach? Lucy loves all kids and disabilities are unseen with her. What a great tool to teach understanding of

I really enjoyed "Bash and Lucy Fetch Jealousy" by Lisa and Michael Cohn. I thought that the story had a great message about human emotions, responsibilities and consequences. These messages were delivered in a very simple and understandable way for young children. I also liked the illustrations, my children are still young so for them the pictures were fun and creative.

Bash and Lucy make a great team! But when Lucy gives her attention to a Special Olympics team, Bash gets very jealous! Bash wants all of Lucy's attention to be on him and his team. That's definitely not a hard thing to understand! Sharing is hard. When I was in preschool, the only straight face I got (yes, back when I was a kid we had smilies, straight faces and frowns for grades!) was in sharing. Whether it is sharing a toy or a dog, all children need to learn to share. They may not be happy ab ...more

This would be the type of book that every little young volunteer should really get their hands on. What more can you say when a mother and son team, partner up to create a children’s book with a true message behind by the words. Lisa and her son Michael tell a story of determination, teamwork, and patience in this picture book for young readers.
