None of Arthur’s friends wear glasses and his classmates tease him! But when he stops wearing them, he gets in all kinds of trouble. Maybe four eyes really are better than two.
Arthur’s Eyes is a helpful book for any young reader who already wears glasses or will soon be getting glasses, especially if she or he feels sensitive about it. Seeing Arthur work his way from being self-conscious to confident will be a helpful guide and a good way to talk through any real life struggles.
