********What Readers are Saying About Luca Lashes*********
"A great book for any little one's first trip to the dentist! Luca Lashes takes children on a wonderful adventure in this book about the 'scary' dentist office. Most kids are terrified at the dentist, but mostly because they don't understand what is happening. The tools are strange. The chair is weird, and the dentist is a stranger to new patients. This book tells kids what to expect and takes that fear away. When children are clearly told what to expect, that fear of the unknown is taken away. I would recommend this book to anyone with a child about to embark on that first dental visit." â€” Kel Fuller, Librarian, Luca Lashes and His First Trip to the Dentist, 4/22/12
"I love that this book comes in multiple languages. What a great concept by having a parent's section at the end of each of your stories to provide guidance with first encounters. A great introduction of Luca in this story an dI look forward to learning more about his character in books to come." â€” iTunes review, Luca Lashes: The Brown Eyed Boy with the Magic Eyelashes, 5 out of 5 stars, 5/4/12
I am terrified of dentists, although when I was a kid, I wasn't. Maybe it was because my dentist gave me free stuff like toothbrushes and cute VHS tapes. If this book [existed back then, I'm sure she would have given me a copy." â€” Marianne Benavidez, Second Bookshelf on the Right, Luca Lashes and His First Trip to the Dentist, 4/26/12
