A great choice for a child who wears glasses (the featured hero is bespectacled). It's also a good way to discuss prejudice and stereotypes with children, and to encourage them to look beyond outward appearance.
Picture books about wearing glasses or an eye patch, and what to expect when you visit an optician. Sometimes children feel uncomfortable wearing glasses for the first time. They may feel embarrassed about ‘standing out from the crowd’, or they simply do not fully understand why they need to wear them. These positive picture books should reassure them that wearing glasses is cool! We’ve also included books in this collection that casually feature characters who wear glasses or an eye patch, to subtly communicate there is nothing unusual about it.
