The Blurb Of Lucy’s Mask

Lucy’s world turned upside down. She’s bored. She can’t be together with her friends. But when she finds out her mom is making her a new mask her boredom turns into excitement. Lucy loves masks! She dives into her toy box full of costumes and opens a world of imagination and make-believe adventure, far beyond the walls of her room. Of course, she doesn’t realize that the mask her mom is making is not a costume at all but one that will keep her safe and make her a real-life superhero.

For parents, grandparents and teachers searching for stories that give kids comfort and reassurance about the sudden changes around them, Lucy’s Mask is a welcome new addition to reading time. This book is not a science lesson. It’s a simple fun story that helps kids make sense of their emotions and makes this new reality more relatable and less scary. It is a wonderful tool to continue the conversation about germs, viruses, the pandemic, and what families have to do to keep themselves safe.

A portion of proceeds from sales of Lucy’s Mask will be donated to front-line workers and first responders.


Lucy’s Mask is a well written and illustrated book. Spotlighting the Indie Author gives the cover, formatting and editing two thumbs up. The story line while dealing with a serious situation is simple. The author avoided info dumping about the virus and the dangers of it which would have overwhelmed and or bored the young reader or listener...
