This inventive, interactive picture book will charm young readers and their parents with a perfect light touch and joyful spirit as the reader gets to do just what Arlo does to solve his problem of not being able to see well. With novelty elements including some great glasses to try on and eye charts to view, readers will interact with Arlo as he rediscovers how to be the best ball-catcher in the neighbourhood and picks up a new favourite pastime along the way - reading!
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!
