A vibrant, positive picture book narrated by Bruno, an active little boy who has a prosthetic eye. Any child could learn a good deal from this picture book about why people have prostheses, how the eye is cared for, and what it means for the wearer. 'My Special Eye' gives a much-needed voice to monocular children.
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.
Gives a positive view of disability. The blind central character (Dan), in partnership with his faithful guide dog (Diesel), feels like he can 'conquer the world'. The book skilfully reflects the vulnerability Dan feels when he is separated from Diesel.
A beautiful exploration of a grandson/grandfather relationship. It gently introduces the concept of ageing, and how older people can become confused. It may support a child who is struggling to come to terms with a loved one's dementia.
