Glasses

"Glasses" features vibrant photographs of young toddlers and babies wearing real glasses and simply doing things that young kids like to do.  The pictures are accompanied by a simple rhyming text that celebrates the role that glasses play in a young child's life.

Reviews
Published by a company that sells children’s eyewear and related accessories, this board book uses upbeat rhymes and clear full-bleed photographs of bespectacled kids to encourage children who need glasses to wear them and remind them why they are important. “Glasses on boys/ Glasses on girls/ With your glasses on you see the world!” reads a typical passage, as cheerful children play and show off their brightly colored frames. Parents of children who are resistant to wearing their glasses may find this a helpful teaching tool. All ages. (BookLife)

Synopsis: A positive board book for babies and toddlers who wear glasses. Colorful glasses, round or square, grace the chubby and happy faces of youngsters to help them see.

Why I like this book:

Ann Gwinn Zawistoski has written a delightful board book with rhyming text that celebrates the important role glasses can play in a child’s life. The book is short, playful and filled with the right amount of information to hold a young child’s attention. It will be a book a child will beg to read again and again. The book also features a diverse group of children. Heide Woodworth’s beautiful photographs are adorable, lively and capture the joy of “seeing” on each child’s face.  I welcome high quality books portraying children with different needs and challenges.

Zawistoski’s daughter started wearing glasses when she was a year old. Her daughter loved looking at books with babies and toddlers’ faces.  The author kept hoping someone would write a book that featured young kids in glasses. Eventually she accepted the fact that no one was going to write a book, so she did. Glasses is the perfect book just right for small hands.
