Testimonials

“As I was reading Pacita The Pacifier Fairy, I found myself wishing that this book had been in the world when my son was a toddler. This is a wonderful story that teaches small children (and their parents) how to find the bravery needed to part with their beloved pacifier. Attry and Febvre have created a unique character and tale that provides gentle comfort and sweet support, as well as helpful tips for parents as they guide their children through the process. The pages are filled with vibrant and playful illustrations; and little ones are sure to see themselves in the adorable animal characters!”

“Pacita the Pacifier Fairy is a vibrant and essential book for parents who have toddlers and young children, whether or not those children use a pacifier. This story about Pacita's magical powers will put your children--and you too!--on the path to a life without pacifiers."

“Leaving behind the pacifier can be a daunting task for children and parents alike. Fortunately, Pacita the Pacifier fairy can come to the rescue. Beyond the clever story and engaging illustrations, the promise of giving up the beloved pacifier in exchange for a magical letter from this guardian angel of binkies is extremely comforting for children. It provides a game plan for parents as well as a trove of helpful resources. A precious tool in overcoming the binky!”
