Glasses is a board book that celebrates the role of glasses in a young child €™s life. Your youngest patients who need glasses will love to see this book in your waiting room or kids' play area. It would also make a great gift for a young child who wears glasses.
Glasses features photographs of real children in glasses, playing and having fun. The short and easy lap read includes delightful rhyming text, €œGlasses for you, glasses for me, I love that your glasses help you to see! €
Author Ann Zawistoski, founder of the popular website, Little Four Eyes, wrote the book based on her experiences as a mother of a young toddler who needed glasses, and from the feedback she heard from thousands of other parents who have shared their personal stories. €œAs a librarian, I turn to books for comfort and to help me process new situations. € says author Ann Zawistoski. €œSo when Zoe got glasses at a year old, I looked for a book about glasses that Zoe might enjoy. I found very little. There €™s some great books out there for kids in glasses, but most involve situations that toddlers just aren €™t likely to encounter, like being in school, or having kids tease you. I really wanted to find a book that was simple and positive. €
The book features children who actually wear prescription eyewear, who volunteered when Ann reached to readers of Little Four Eyes. All the children were photographed in a real preschool as they played together. With its vivid images of smiling faces, Glasses provides an authentic, inclusive experience for the kids reading it, from babies to preschoolers.
