This is a fun different take on the experience of getting glasses and one little girl's roller coaster of emotions as she goes from really not wanting to go to the opticians to REALLY wanting glasses (once she sees how cool her friend's glasses are) to really disappointed when she doesn't actually need glasses. The sibling relationships in this book are healthy and encouraging, the illustrations are cute and the message is great.
