***** Review *****
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 Lucy also teach and help young readers understand what it is to be a service dog, as well as sharing our best qualities and assets with those who need them most.
