What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Doubles are good for lots of things—double scoops of ice cream, double features at the movies. But double vision is NOT a good kind of double. In fact, it can make kindergarten kind of hard. Ginny sees double chairs at reading circle and double words in her books. She knows that only half of what she sees is real, but which half? The solution to her problem is wondrously simple: an eye patch! Ginny becomes the pirate of kindergarten.With the help of her pirate patch, Ginny can read, run, and even snip her scissors with double the speed! Vibrant illustrations from Lynne Avril capture the realities of what Ginny sees both before and after.

This book is a great book for addressing the rather niche topic of needing an eye patch to correct for double vision. It does a beautiful job of illustrating what double vision feels like to create empathy in those of us who have never experienced double vision and highlight some of the feelings a child experiencing the complications of double vision might have. I love how excited the little girl is right off the bat to have a patch, and her positive transformation into an awesome pirate!
