How My Son Became an Award-Winning Author and Book Reviewer at Age 5 By Lisa Cohn





When our dog, Lucy, died suddenly of cancer two years ago, I couldn’t eat, sleep or work.

I was desperate to find a way to cope with my grief, and in my pain, started to write, a process that always comforts me.

I began a children’s book that featured Lucy, a wise but mischievous golden retriever who loved to chase and catch balls. It was my way of keeping her alive.

Soon enough, in my sleepless state, I got stuck.

So I invited my book lover, Michael, who was 4 at the time, to help me finish the book.

Not only did Michael jump in and tell me how to finish the book; he became my chief spokesman, salesman and content provider. And of course, he quickly earned the title of co-author. His first job, as co-author, was to appear--along with our new puppy--in this book trailer filmed by an award-winning teen videographer:

Within a few months, with the help of talented illustrator Heather Nichols, Michael and I completed and released “Bash and Lucy Fetch Confidence,” which received a Mom’s Choice Silver Award and was named finalist, USA Best Book Awards.

Along the way, we decided we needed a blog, that it should be called “Michael’s Dog Blog,” and that it should feature Michael appearing in videos extolling the virtues of dogs.

In our first videos, Michael told heroic dog stories, but he decided he also wanted to talk about his other favorite subject—books. When he was still four, we released Michael’s first book review—his take on “Clifford the Firehouse Dog.”

Soon, authors began approaching us requesting that Michael review their books. Two years later, I still field many book review requests for Michael, and we have a huge stack of books waiting for his rating.

We just released our second book, “Bash and Lucy Fetch Jealousy,” and I'm proud to say my book lover came up with the jealousy theme and created most of the story line. I put the words on paper, but the feeling, detail and conflict come from Michael. He jumped for joy earlier this week when he learned that “Bash and Lucy Fetch Jealousy” had earned a Mom’s Choice Silver Award.

Everyday, I feel grateful and fortunate to have a 6-year-old as my co-author. Whether we’re visiting schools together, filming book reviews—in taxis, parks, ski lodges and gyms—or planning our next book, our project brings us closer and reaps many, many rewards.
