Review

This is the kind of cute little tale preschoolers will want to enjoy for years. I really do recommend this to be added to your child's or grand-child's library; you will be richly rewarded with hugs and kisses every time you read it to them! - Reviewed by Lee Ashford for Readers Favorite

From the Author

I originally got the idea of writing my first children's book while I was hanging out with my young nieces one day. We wondered why my newly-adopted little dachshund Lucci (pronounced loochy) never gave smoochies, and I started rhyming verses while sketching the beginning pages of the children's picture book, LUCCI- THE NO SMOOCHIE POOCHIE.
 
We had a ball, and I later finished the story and illustrations and had the book printed and bound just as it is available now, as well as in Kindle eBook format here on Amazon.Com.
 
LUCCI THE NO SMOOCHIE POOCHIE is a cute little story that I hope you and the kids in your life will enjoy. It's perfect for bedtime, and I give advance thanks for your taking the time to read it!

One day, she and her two young nieces wondered why her real adopted dachshund Lucci never gave smoochies, so Ms. Sadd began rhyming verses and sketching the beginning pages of the story, "Lucci The No Smoochie Poochie."

LUCCI-The No Smoochie Poochie is an adorable little childrens book which sends out the message of patience and love. Lucci is a dog who is not very friendly towards his owners. The owners try to show Lucci love through hugs and kisses and Lucci rejects the affections each time. Eventually Lucci comes around and returns the affection of the patient owners. LUCCI-The No Smoochie Poochie is just right for your young children who are learning the values of patience and understanding the concept of love. Love is lived out in patience and LUCCI does a wonderful job of displaying and explaining this concept in a fun manner.

The images in LUCCI-The No Smoochie Poochie are very simple yet springs to life through the colors. I believe that the simple drawing style used here will encourage your children in creating like characters of thier own.

*Children's*

Lucci is a dog who enjoys all of the other things dogs do, belly rubs, scratching behind the ears, running, playing. He doesn't enjoy one thing most dogs do though... smooches. The family tries everything but Lucci won't give in.

This is a delightful story and perfect for younger children. The rhyming of it will help the story stick once it's finished. I'm positive this will become a favorite of your children too. We all loved it here! Our older dog, Buddy, was a lot like Lucci. Make this a gift of reading for your youngster whether they are reading yet or not!

I found no issues here.

I gave this one 5 out of 5 books because it's a topic kids love... DOGS!

I downloaded this picture book for free this evening to read with my 5 year old at bedtime. The story is definitely cute, seeing the family crave the affection of their newly adopted pup, Lucci. My son enjoyed the drawings and pointed out the dogs on each page as I read to him. The rhymes flowed well and it was just the right length for a bedtime story.

This might not read so well on a regular Kindle, as the photos are in color.

Very sweet poem about a dog who doesn't give smoochies until the family shows him months and months of love. The illustrations are in the style of children's drawings, with some collages of the author's nieces and nephews photos. The overall feel is of a family keepsake that the author has shared; we really enjoyed this as a bedtime read.

This is a cute story about a bashful dog. Lucci doesn't want hugs and kisses so the family lets him have some space. Nice story to help kids understand that some animals need to be treated different.

I received a print copy of Lucci-The No Smoochie Poochie from the author for the purpose of review.

When I read this book to my 3 year old daughter, she loved it! The story is not too long as to keep a very young one's attention. The illustrations are very simple; they look like a child's drawing further engaging young ones to the book. At one point, the author mentions her nieces and nephews in the book and even has their pictures incorporated into the illustrations. My daughter loved this. She thought one of the author's nieces looked like her. She said, "Mommy, that's me. I'm playing with Lucci". My daughter put herself right into the story which to me is a very good sign that she liked and was enjoying the book.

There was only one editing error that I found. On page 22 of the book: "the wondrous event just past (should be "passed") us all by!"

Thank you Donna for sending me the book to review! You can learn more about Ms Sadd by visiting her website at [...]and her blog at donnalsadd.wordpress.com. I look forward to more from this children's author!

Lucci - The No Smoochie Poochie by Donna L. Sadd is a charming story of a sweet little dog named Lucci and the family that loves her.

The family adopted Lucci and showered him with love and affection, but Lucci refused to give them any smoochies. They fed him and cuddled and played with him, but when it was time for kisses Lucci would run away. Perplexed the family doesn't know what to do so they decide to do nothing. No more smoochies for Lucci. Will Lucci miss all the attention from her family and learn to love smoochies?

Lucci - The No Smoochie Poochie teaches children that everyone, even poochies, need love and affection and it's not until we lose it that we can learn to appreciate. Certainly a story children will want to hear again and again.
