With Special Olympics right around the corner for me to attend, this little book was simply amazing and hit home immediately. 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. Bash has a unique fondness for his furry friend. She does so much for Bash and their sports team. So when the opportunity arises that Lucy takes that excitement and enthusiasm to help others, Bash is not too sure about that. Lucy disappears and the entire sports team does everything that they can to find Lucy. However, in the end, a message is learned and friends are gained. The water colors in this book are perfect. They truly add a special touch as the reader approaches every page. I’ll have to check out the first book in the series, to see what lesson is learned from Bash and Lucy too! Lastly, the writing is spotless, flows nicely and creates a truly realistic feel for the storyline and setting!
