Pacita the Pacifier Fairy is a cartoon-y adventure that will make a great book for story time!

This is an utterly adorable tale putting a spin on pacifiers I have never seen before! I'm totally impressed. Not only is this book adorable and the perfect story time read, but it's just down right fun. The animals are cute too, which makes it even better!

Three out of five stars.

I love this little colourful picture book!

The story is so heartwarming!

I think I won't get to read another pacifier storybook like this. It's so cute. And yes, parents can actually read out loud to kids if ever they have a problem with their kids having some reluctance to let go of their beloved pacifiers.

I love the writing, bold and distinct.

I love the art, colourful and vibrant.

I love the wholesome presentation.

A good one!

Thank you, author and the Publisher, for the ARC.

We create habits from an early age, sometimes to ease our difficulties, to calm down, or simply to enjoy a certain action. But when the time comes to give up on doing something, it doesn't always go so easily, especially if it's a a child.
One such habit is the use of a pacifier, an innocent effect from the beginning of life, but sometimes giving it up is a huge emotional problem for the little ones. This story, which is presented through a series of words with excellent use of rhyme, reminds me

I received an electronic ARC from Beyond the Bridge Communications LLC through NetGalley.
Attry has created a story of a fairy who takes care of pacifiers when children are ready to give them up. She leaves a letter in the paci's place. A helpful tool for families to make this transition and help kids find other soothing techniques. The story is simple with cute illustrations.
The information included at the end of the book is helpful for adults and offers guidance and support.

This was a charming little book for anyone looking for advice on how to help a child give up their pacifier. It begins with a beautifully illustrated tale about Pacita explaining how she collects pacifiers for safe keeping and in return she leaves letter for the children. I particularly liked this idea as its something I’ve down with my own child with the tooth fairy – she absolutely adored getting letters from her, so I can see what an excellent idea this is.

Thank you to the author, the publisher, and NetGalley for granting me access to this title in exchange for an honest review.

Pacita the Pacifier Fairy explains who the Pacifier Fairy is to kids and how she'll take their pacifiers away to a safe place, take care fo them, and perhaps pass them on to younger kids in need when it's time for growing kids to say goodbye to their own. It's both a cute story and a handy resource for parents desperately trying to end the reign of the pacifier in their hom

Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this book for review.
I have a particular interest in this book as I have a 4 year old who is very dependent on his dummy despite many attempts to wean him off it. I read this story to my son and he was really engaged with it and asking questions. However, at the end I still feel he thought of it as just a story, and not something to relate to himself and his dummy. Luckily for me, the end of the book comes with advice for parents as well so

As the mother of a pacifier-addicted toddler, this book was really interesting. I loved the section at the back with ideas for parents. I have read it with my toddler and it seems to be helping him to understand that his days with the pacifier are limited. A short, engaging read and very useful.

I received this ebook from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I really love books that help parents get rid of pacifiers or bottles, and this one did not disappoint. Pacita is a cute little fairy that collects unwanted pacifiers that kids have outgrown. With the rhyming of each page, kids will definitely want to read this one over and over!

This book is like a poem for the lil kids, helping them thru the journey of growing up and having to let go of the pacifier: well colored, nice illustrations. The sentences rhyme and are cute.
You will even find some advices, tricks and more from some experts. The fairy is cute and kids will like her! Nice way to support the processus of removing the pacifier to your kids.

Pacita the Pacifier Fairy by Charlotte Attry is a wonderful book to help parents and guardians to ween their children from using a pacifier. The beautifully illustrated story encourages children to not use their pacifier anymore. Also, I enjoyed all the tips, advice, and educational information provided in the back of the book to help with this scenario. It teaches parents to encourage and compliment their children while going through this process. Charlotte Attry also emphasizes patience. There ...more

A pacifier fairy comes to the rescue of a little one who finds it hard to let go of their pacifier in this charming tale by Attry, Febvre, and Lawson.

What happens when little one finds it hard to part with their binky? Pacita, the pacifier fairy, stows it away in her fairy adobe, leaving a beautiful letter full of wisdom and grace in its place.

The main appeal of the book is not just the excellent combination of rhymed narrative but also the charming illustrations — Olivier Huette’s personality-

I really wanted to read this book to my daughter.

She is three years old at the moment and we are hoping to try and wean her off her dummy at some point in the near future when she is ready. She only really had it now at bed just as she falls to sleep and the rest of the time it is in my pocket.

She enjoyed the story but did think that it was a dummy shop (we are in the UK) and not that the fairy was storing them, she took her dummy out a few times as we were reading at bedtime and did say that sh

Pacita is the binky fairy that helps ease the transition of growing up and giving up your pacifier. You cannot see Pacita, but she is there to give caring words of love and affection. Her job is complete when the child no longer misses their binky.

Reading this with my 5 year old daughter, we enjoyed the colorful illustrations and lovely rhymes. I’m not sure if the book is geared for adults or little ones to help understand why we need to give up our beloved pacifiers. Little children may not tho

This book creates a character who's the pacifier equivalent of the tooth fairy, Pacita. This book explains Pacita’s role and gently encourages the child to give up his or her pacifier.

Though we call it a dummy here, this book was great at really sharing the idea of getting our daughter to learn that there is a time when you outgrow your dummy and really need to let it go. She loved the book and we really think it helped her get rid of it! The ideas and tips, at the back of the book, were lifesavers and helped us implement and reach the stage of getting rid of the dreaded dummy. We highly recommend this book!

Pacita the Pacifier Fairy provides a gentler way of removing a pacifier from your child's habits than the one I used (I just kept 'losing' her pacifier). The book also provides tips to help you guide your child through the loss of their pacifier.

After reading this book, I was very very happy that I never allowed my baby to use a pacifier. Really, it's that difficult to stop a child from using one? Is that why some children suck their thumbs (I was one of those kids, but my daughter was not). The illustrations are cute, the text is in rhyme, and there is helpful information in the back for parents who have this problem. ...more

Some children have a hard time letting go of their pacifier. It’s something some kids get rid of early, and some kids need to be told it’s time to go. This book illustrates a way to get rid of the binky with a story about a fairy who collects them and places them someplace special. In the back there are helpful tips for parents on how to toss the binkies in use at your house.

I love the idea of a paci fairy. It is a hard for both parents and kids to get rid of the pacifier and this story does a great job at laying the groundwork for the paci to be collected by pacita. I also love that there are a few pages of helpful tips for the parent.
