Though we call it a dummy here, this book was great at really sharing the idea of getting our daughter to learn that there is a time when you outgrow your dummy and really need to let it go. She loved the book and we really think it helped her get rid of it! The ideas and tips, at the back of the book, were lifesavers and helped us implement and reach the stage of getting rid of the dreaded dummy. We highly recommend this book!

Some children have a hard time letting go of their pacifier.  It’s something some kids get rid of early, and some kids need to be told it’s time to go.  This book illustrates a way to get rid of the binky with a story about a fairy who collects them and places them someplace special.  In the back there are helpful tips for parents on how to toss the binkies in use at your house.

I love this little colourful picture book!

The story is so heartwarming!

I think I won't get to read another pacifier storybook like this. It's so cute. And yes, parents can actually read out loud to kids if ever they have a problem with their kids having some reluctance to let go of their beloved pacifiers.

I love the writing, bold and distinct. 

I love the art, colourful and vibrant. 

I love the wholesome presentation. 

A good one!

Thank you, author and the Publisher, for the ARC.

Pacita is the binky fairy that helps ease the transition of growing up and giving up your pacifier. You cannot see Pacita, but she is there to give caring words of love and affection. Her job is complete when the child no longer misses their binky.

Reading this with my 5 year old daughter, we enjoyed the colorful illustrations and lovely rhymes. I’m not sure if the book is geared for adults or little ones to help understand why we need to give up our beloved pacifiers.  Little children may not thoroughly understand the point of the story. My daughter doesn’t remember using a pacifier, but she enjoyed reading this. I love the advice/tips offered at the end of the book to help parents ease the fears of their little one giving up their treasured soothie. This was a good, helpful read and I think adults and children will enjoy it. 

Thank you Netgalley and Beyond the Bridge Communications, LLC for the opportunity to read a copy.

Simple rhyming text with bright colorful illustrations provides parents and caregivers with a great story that will help pave the path for young children to part with their pacifiers which provide comfort for them. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced readers copy of this book thanks to NetGalley.

This was so adorable! And also fits what I need exactly I have a little boy right now who loves his paci and he just turned two, I have ran out of ways to help him give up his pacifier. This book was cute and the helpful tips at the end are even better. I will definitely be getting this book and I definitely will recommend it to anyone having some issues also to parents who are not having issues I think this would also be something good. The illustrations are also beautiful. Thank you netgalley and the publisher for sending me a free e arc for my honest review.

Need Help To Get Your Child to Give Their Pacifier?

This is a story meant to be read to a young child to help them give up a pacifier. Children who rely on their binkies for emotional needs or when tired eventually need to be weaned from their use. This book creates a character who's the pacifier equivalent of the tooth fairy, Pacita. This book explains Pacita’s role and gently encourages the child to give up his or her pacifier. There are end pages in the back just for the parents about how to approach this, including a page from a French clinical psychologist. If you have a child who should release his or her need for a pacifier, this book could help get the ball rolling, explaining it all in magical terms that small children tend to light.

This book is such a great concept, and I think parents will find it helpful if their child currently has a dummy/pacifier they are wanting to wean them off. Its a big thing at the moment of fairies taking these devices and replacing with something else. I especially love the addition at the end.

What a wonderful and sweet book to help children give up their pacifiers! The story is fun to read, easy to understand, and comforting. Included at the end is tips for parents on helping their child separate from their pacifier. 

Thank you NetGalley and the publisher for providing this ARC.

I really wanted to read this book to my daughter.

She is three years old at the moment and we are hoping to try and wean her off her dummy at some point in the near future when she is ready.  She only really had it now at bed just as she falls to sleep and the rest of the time it is in my pocket.

She enjoyed the story but did think that it was a dummy shop (we are in the UK) and not that the fairy was storing them, she took her dummy out a few times as we were reading at bedtime and did say that she would need to give her dummy to the fairy soon as she starts school next year.

A great way to introduce the idea of giving the dummy up, I will read it with a her few more times and see how we go as in no real rush at the moment as it is limited in its use but would be nice to lose it for next year.  Definitely a book I will be reading again.

Well written, lovely illustrations and easy to follow and understand – 5 stars from me – very highly recommended!

Pacita the Pacifier Fairy is a charming picture book that does make a few missteps. As a whole, it is still a lovely choice albeit not best nighttime read for the little ones.

A great book for parents and children to share, with a visually appealing cover and useful guide for parents following the story. I’d recommend this for parents of children under 6 years old.

The perfect book for all us parents who have Paci-Lovers! Such a sweet story to ease the end of using a pacifier & we get to meet Pacita the pacifier fairy who will take good good care of our paci's! I loved this story & how at the end we get some pro-tips from the experts on how handle the sensitive subject. Great job on this book! I think it would be a perfect addition to any pediatricians office or children's dental office as a take home gift!

Pacita the Pacifier Fairy is similar to the story of the tooth fairy. She takes children's pacifiers away to a safe place and leaves two letters, the first to help children understand the situation and the second to celebrate success in moving on from the pacifier. 

Not crazy about the illustrations, but the rhyming structure is great for kids and the story has a deep compassion for children. For children of this age range, it is important for them to become more aware of feelings, and this book does an excellent job of trying to raise that awareness. The book also helps parents develop approaches to this issue with their children, helping parents to better understand what children are going through when they get upset.

Pacita the Pacifier Fairy provides a gentler way of removing a pacifier from your child's habits than the one I used (I just kept 'losing' her pacifier).  The book also provides tips to help you guide your child through the loss of their pacifier.

This is a perfect book to handle a child's reluctance of letting their pacifier go. Pacita is charming and sweet and offers enough compassion and understanding to child who might not want to let their soother go. I think it would be a helpful tool to parents, while still being engaging and understandable to a young audience.

Great book with nice illustrations for kids on reducing/eliminating the "paci." Also has nice practical tips for parents on how to introduce the idea of reducing/eliminating paci use to their child.
