Glasses: Who Needs 'Em?: 07/28/15
Glasses: Who Needs 'Em? by Lane Smith is about a boy who doesn't want to wear glasses. An optometrist with a sense of humor and great patience finally convinces him to.
The story consists of an illustrated conversation between the two. It gets sillier and sillier, with examples that include potatoes, dinosaurs and little green men.
The book is well suited either to young children who have to wear glasses and might not want to, or for siblings who don't know what to make of the new glasses on their brother or sister.
My daughter and I read the book together after my son got his first pair of glasses. Remarkably he was fine with needing them — relieved actually once he could see properly. His friends at school were also very supportive. But my daughter, wasn't so sure at first.
