Douglas loves to play with his human, Nancy, but he has a bit of a problem: he is nearsighted. Sometimes, when he thinks he’s chasing a squirrel, he’s actually chasing a leaf. Sometimes he can’t read important signs, and steps in wet concrete. Sometimes, he even goes to the wrong house! So Nancy takes Douglas to the eye doctor, and they find that he needs glasses. Once he picks a pair that he likes, he finds that life with good vision is twice as sweet!
This book was so great! Illustrations were adorable and funny, the text was fun to read, and the length was perfect for baby bookworms. I especially loved the subject matter, though: I have a degenerative eye disorder, and have had to wear corrective lenses or contacts for most of my life, and we know that the same may be so of JJ as she gets older. It’s great to know that if, down the road, she needs glasses like I did, this book can make the process less scary and more fun! Love this book, and we highly recommend it! Baby Bookworm approved!
