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!

D7FBEA9F-D6CF-4159-805C-0A05519E2BF4I like this book because: It was SUCH a hit with my storytime gang and the adults in the room too! Fun bright illustrations with plenty to pour over in side jokes (look at those worms!) and perfect pacing to keep the whole crowd happy and asking for more!

2BE572AB-0309-4C04-B325-25827AC9219CResources/Activities: we made paper eyeglasses to color, and I brought any type of eyewear I could find in the house for them all to try on, even a pair with a nose and moustache – which I must say looked best worn upside down!
