Do you have a child who needs glasses? Is he or she a bit nervous about getting them? Or, maybe you have a child like Bobbie, a little girl who desperately wants a pair of glasses but doesn’t need them. As you can see in my photo, my son would definitely be the one who wants
a pair but doesn’t need them, while I personally on the other hand need
glasses but don’t want them. In fact, it was only this year that I
actually built up the nerve and went to get an eye exam.
The bright and colorful new children’s book, Glamorous Glasses by
Barbara Johansen Newman is an adorable story based
on the author’s childhood and her lifelong obsession with eyeglasses.
In this book she takes a that a lot of kids (or grown-ups like me) may get nervous or upset about (like getting glasses), and lightens it up with two adorable little characters who take this journey together. Bobbie (Barbara JN’s nickname as a child) goes to the eye
doctor with her cousin and is enthralled while Joanie tries on frames.
Bobbie is desperate to get her own pair of glamorous glasses but is
dismayed when the doctor says her vision is perfect. Later, when their
mothers aren’t looking, the girls trade Joanie’s glasses for Bobbie’s
purse, but after some mishaps they discover that seeing clearly is
actually better than looking glamorous!
The whimsical illustrations will capture your child’s attention and definitely enhance the story by drawing them right in. I love how the book captures a normal childhood situation, and teaches the moral to children that they are perfect just the way they are.
Be sure to check out Barbara’s super-fun website geared for kids (and their parents) based around this adorable new book.
