Arlo Needs Glasses - Book Review

Every child who wears glasses will know just how Arlo feels, and will feel better because of it. And every parent will want that child to know that glasses are cool and fun and enable us to do the things we want to do. Take Arlo: He’s a shaggy, free-spirited dog who loves to play catch, until one day he can’t. He can’t see the ball anymore. He needs glasses!

ISBN-10:0761168796, 9780761168799, 24 pages, Workman Publishing Co. Purchase Arlo Needs Glasses.  

My thoughts: First thing my kids noticed when we pulled out this book were all the interactive things they could do while we read the book. Arlo heads to the optometrist to get his eyes checked. While there the kids get to look through a fold-out phoropter, they get to try glasses on Arlo and themselves as Arlo chooses the pair that fits him best. After Arlo gets his new glasses he can see the ball again and the kids can play fetch with him. My kids loved all the items they could move and play with even at the age of 5 & 6. We have read Arlo Needs Glasses a number of times since getting it. I liked that it is a great beginner reader book and also the pictures are very vibrant and happy. A great children's book.
