Specs For Rex by Yasmeen Ismail


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.
