Review: Luca Lashes The Brown Eyed Boy With the Magic Eyelashes by Nicole and Damir Fonovich


SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:

Discover the world with Luca Lashes! Read and interact with a children's story in four languages. Please enjoy this multilingual, educational audio eBook series.
This eBook introduces the main character, Luca Lashes, and the accompanying series, following the exploits of "Luca Lashes, the Brown-eyed Boy with the Magic Eyelashes," as he discovers the world around him and experiences his "firsts" in life. The eBook includes parent suggestions and focuses on a relatable character.
This eBook is intended for 0-4 year olds. To promote reading in young children, individual words are highlighted as the story is read.  By combining the original text and artwork with features that entertain and promote reading, this eBook appeals to all readers.

MY TAKE:

I actually read one of the later Luca Lashes before I read this one so I already knew what to expect.

Luca Lashes is a sweet little boy with magical lashes. These lashes help him conquer his fears and be okay with new experiences.

It's a terrific technique to teach your kids, especially those who are timid about new experiences. As this book is an introduction to Luca Lashes, there's not much in the way of plot here. If you're looking for a plot, I suggest heading straight for the other Luca Lashes books. It helps to read this book first, though, so you have a better idea of how Luca's magic lashes work.

Thanks to NetGalley and PRByTheBook for the e-copy.

THE GOOD:

  1. The coloring is pretty.
  2. Luca can help kids overcome their fears.
  3. Little kids can relate to him.

THE BAD:

  1. There's no plot exactly because this is more of an introduction.

FAVORITE QUOTE/S:


The lashes grew thick and the lashes and the lashes grew strong,
And of course the lashes grew extra long.


READ IT IF:

  1. You have a young child.
  2. Your child is timid.
  3. You like original concepts.
