Summary: (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.
I 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!
