Review: Bad Dog Bailey and What Will You See When You Go to the Zoo by Harrison Lacy


I love when authors are so very generous!!!  I love authors who give back!

For the month of September, they will be donating 100% of the proceeds of their books to The Monday Life. They have written a second children's book called "What You Will See When You Go to the Zoo!" which is a fun, rhyming book about zoo animals.

They are really hoping to raise awareness of the charity and be able to provide a generous donation for the month. To launch their September promotion, they visited the Duke Children's hospital to hand deliver over 40 copies of our books to the children!

Below is a summary of our two books and the charity they are supporting.

Our first children's book is called "Bad Dog Bailey!" and the inspiration behind the book is my son's relationship with our golden retriever, Bailey. It has beautiful illustrations and fun, simple phrases that children love to repeat. The second book that we just released a few weeks ago is called "What You Will See When You Go to the Zoo!" It is a cute, rhyming children's book about the amazing animals you can expect to see when you visit the zoo. Whether laughing at the ostrich who's not too good at hide and seek or admiring the penguins dressed for a night on the town, readers will love the vibrant illustrations and silly situations.

The Monday Life is an organization dedicated to improving the environments for hospitalized children around the country. They do this by enhancing the environment inside children's hospitals through art, music, lighting, color, technology, massage, expression, and fun. Outside of the month of September, we will always be donating 10% of our sales to The Monday Life.

Who doesn't love going to the Zoo?  I loved traveling to the Zoo and seeing all the funny and silly character that call the Zoo home!!  Again me and my boys adored this book!  The pictures are super colorful and interesting.  I love that these books also allow the kind of books that allow the kids to look at the pictures and create there own stories.  They are great for all all early reading levels.  As a mother and teacher, I LOVE both there books!!  5 stars!!!!


Harrison LacyAbout the author~

When I'm not at the beach or the park, I like to write children's books with my parents. I can also do some pretty amazing things with crayons! I have written two children's books and we donate a portion of all the proceeds to an awesome charity, The Monday Life. They help improve the environment for hospitalized children through art, music, lighting, color, technology, massage, expression, and fun.

In "Bad Dog Bailey!" I give a first hand account of all the trouble my dog Bailey finds herself in on a daily basis. It has beautiful illustrations and simple, fun to repeat phrases which makes it a great addition to any family's library of picture books for kids.

"What You Will See When You Go to the Zoo" is a cute, rhyming children's book about the amazing animals you can expect to see when you visit the zoo! Whether laughing at the ostrich who's not too good at hide and seek or admiring the penguins dressed for a night on the town, readers will love the vibrant illustrations and silly situations!

Please check out my books and if you like them, I hope you will take a minute to leave a review- with a bazillion stars! It would mean a lot!
