  2. My mom bought this book for me when I first got glasses It s cute and imaginative illustrations show children why it s important to wear their glasses I have read it to my young students who didn t want to wear their glasses.


  3. Cute book, and the kids and I liked it The real fun came later, though, when the kids asked me to take off my glasses and tell them what they looked like as they made faces and struck poses.



  4. I loved this book as a child I still have my childhood copy and reread it recently It is just as funny and charming as I remembered I am thrilled to be reading of Raskin s work presently with The Westing Game.


  5. This was one of my favorite books when I was little I remember checking it out at the library constantly I even based a story I wrote in first grade on it I think it is funny that all of these years later I still remembered the title, the color of the cover, and the pictures.


  6. Such a charming picture book, about a girl who is surrounded by fanciful creatures, until the day she gets spectacles.
