Specs for Rex by Yasmeen Ismail

Rex has new glasses and he HATES them! He does NOT want to wear them to school, and he tries to hide them - in the strangest places! But it's pretty tricky hiding specs that are so big, and round and RED . . . It's funny how things turn out, though, because Rex's specs end up winning him a gold star, and a new friend. Even better, he can SEE properly. A beautifully illustrated and charming story about the positive effects of being, well, maybe just a little different.
