Synopsis

Arlo Needs Glasses by Barney Saltzberg

One out of five school-age children needs glasses. This interactive picture book shows them just how lucky they are. It lets children and their parents read an eye chart, look through a fold-out phoropter (that big machine optometrists use), and try on different pairs of glasses - movie star glasses! superhero glasses! and mad scientist glasses!
