Mother, son writing team show what life is like for kids with sensory sensitivities in Bash and Lucy: Fetch Team Vera and the Dream Beasts
I’m pleased to partner with BeachBoundBooks in coordinating a Book Blast for Lisa & Michael Cohn's newest children's book, Bash and Lucy: Fetch Team Vera and the Dream Beasts. Their book speaks to me as a former special educator as the authors address challenges faced by kids for whom certain sights and sounds send them into sensory overload.
I've worked with many children and parents to address this unique style, so I'm over the moon to see more authors tackle the issue. tbh, I only had time to skim the book as I'm consumed with RIGHTsizing, but I loved my first glimpse. With its kid-friendly layout and font (no visual distractions here!) and bright pictures providing context clues for each chapter, it's perfect for beginning readers or reading aloud. Plus, Bash and Lucy offer tons of discussion possibilities about inclusion and bullying.
Please read on to:
The Book Blast runs May 21 - May 23, 2018.
Giveaway ends 4 June.
Happy tales and good luck!

He counts on his dog, Lucy, to help keep him calm. But Paula, Bash's girl-power cousin, is causing all sorts of trouble.

All the best with your book and life journey!
What a great book for sensory-sensitive kids. I have a friend whose daughter faced such challenges and I wish this book had been around when she was younger. Plus, I love that it is written by a mother-son team. I will have to add it to my reading list.
