Meet Luca, and his magical eyelashes. He blinks twice and they grow long to help him be brave and strong. As is common practice, Luca is due for a well-visit and needs a shot but finds himself a bit apprehensive about the doctor’s office. Lucky for Luca, he has those magical eyelashes and some encouragement from his mommy and the staff at the doctor’s office. He gets through his visit with no tears and a clean bill of health.
Luca Lashes Visits the Doctor is the sixth book in the Luca Lashes series aimed at reader’s ages 0-4. It is a continuation of the Luca Lashes series of books dealing with children’s first experiences such as first dental visits, first haircuts, and swimming lessons. There is even a “Suggestions for Parents” page in the back of the book with neat tips and great advice to help your children cope with upcoming first milestones.
Did you know that the Luca Lashes series is available in Chinese, English, French, Italian and Spanish? There is a whole team of people behind the scenes that help make each Luca Lashes story come alive.
There are currently 18 books planned in the series with more to come in 2014. I encourage parents to check out the Luca Lashes website, it’s a ton of fun, very educational, and there are even apps available for download to enhance the reading experience.
