D374594A-000A-45C0-9D7F-59657D41F634Summary: (from my library’s catalog) Though Paige claims, “I can see just fine, ” her parents grow concerned and decide it’s time for Paige to visit the eye doctor. Paige remains defiant until she finds the perfect frames and more importantly, perfect eyesight.

EE0B6BDF-601B-4841-9D09-19923A50260BI like this book because: Last week’s storytime theme was eyewear, and though I didn’t get the chance to read this one to the gang, it is worthy of a post! I love the simple graphic style of rendering in a sweet, macaron palette, and the endearing main character who we all must feel we know well! Perfectly informative without being pedagogical!

  1. My daughter already had her glasses by the time this book was published, but we still found everything about this title SPOT ON! Defiance, insistence, surprise and delight all in 32 pages.
