This is not only a fantastic book to engage the imaginations of blind and partially sighted children, it is also a great choice for all children to explore how they use their senses. Adults could use this book to open a discussion about what it feels like to be blind or partially sighted.
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.
This lovely board book could be used to introduce young children to wearing glasses in a positive way. It should help children who need glasses and their families family feel less alone and more comfortable with glasses. It could also be used to help other children learn more about why some children need glasses.
