Rate this post

Workman PublishingOne out of five school-age children need eyeglasses, and one beloved children's author shows them just how lucky they are.  Going from two eyes to four isn't a bummer, says Barney Saltzberg, the creative force behind nearly 40 popular children's books.  In fact, it's a rich adventure.

Just ask Arlo, a shaggy, free-spirited dog who loves to play catch - until one day, he can't see the ball anymore.  He needs glasses!  Keep reading to learn more!

I reviewed the Arlo Needs Glasses children's book by Barney Saltzberg, which retails for $15.95, but is currently on sale for $10.85 with FREE SHIPPING.

Arlo Needs Glasses by Barney SaltzbergArlo Needs Glasses is the latest book from Saltzberg, the bespectacled bestselling author of Beautiful Oops!, Peekaboo Kisses and Good Egg.  Inspired by his own canine companion, Arlo Needs Glasses is an inventive, interactive picture book that helps kids see the fun in wearing glasses.

Every child in glasses will know just how Arlo feels, and will feel better because of it.  Saltzberg helps them see why glasses are cool - they enable us to do the things we want to do.

Saltzberg charms young readers (and their parents) with a perfect light touch and joyful spirit, and kids get to do just what Arlo does to solve his problem: they read an eye chart, look through a fold-out phoropter and try on different pairs of glasses - movie-star glasses, superhero glasses, mad scientist glasses.

They interact with Arlo as he rediscovers how to be the best ball-catcher in the neighborhood and picks up a new favorite pastime along the way...reading!
