Format: Hardcover
This was a fun book that really brought out a great message about wearing glasses and dealing with the change and what people will say when you have to start wearing them. My daughters loved the story but even more they loved the pop up nature of the book. My youngest could not get enough of the book and kept asking us to read this over and over again. The book was engaging and interactive and allows the child to truly take control of the story. I highly recommend this for any child that may be getting glasses, but also for any child that may interact with other children that might be getting glasses (thus everyone).

Breeze's Review:
I sat down with my 3 year old to read her this very cute story that is told through a very imaginative and interactive pop up book. As we turned the pages my daughter was so excited to see what would come next. I really appreciated that even though the book was fun to read it also ended with the thought that Arlo likes to read. It is important to encourage children to enjoy reading and I felt that the author did an excellent job of teaching that. This is by far one of the best books for children that I have seen in awhile, it kept my daughter interested for much longer then other books. Her favorite part of the book was putting on the many different glasses Arlo had to try on. I highly recommend it.

Lynda's Thoughts:
I just wanted to add that the illustrations, the book's vibrant color and size, all add to it's appeal.. The many interactive components will delight and instruct a child, giving them a love for books in general and a curiosity that will fuel their love of reading. We are happy to give this book our highest rating - 5 Stars!

This book is GREAT! My 4 year old son just got glasses and this book was a great help to get him adjusted to his new glasses. I highly recommend it to anyone whose child needs glasses! When I purchased it I thought it was just a picture book , but it has a pop-up page to try the glasses on the dog and tab pages for them to pull as well.

Format: Hardcover
We searched high and low for a fun book to get for our 2 year old son when he was getting glasses. This book seemed new and interactive... and were we right! The book is filled with fun tabs to pull, pop ups, and cardboard glasses to "try on" the dog. The only problem is that with all the loose pieces and pull tabs, we only could use this book for about 2 months and my son had destroyed it. The pull tabs ripped off, the pop up page at the end was pulled down and the glasses were all bent and/or lost. It did it's job for us to acclimate our child to the fun and exciting world of glasses and why we need them... but I would recommend this book for 4+ years old. You've been warned.

My son, age 4, was recently given glasses and this book did a lot to move glasses to the realm of cool.

This book was a gift and arrived the very same day my 3 yrs. old grandson got his glasses. Imagine my joy to see him on Skype that evening showing me several of the pair of punch-out, colorful "glasses" that came with the book. He had such a big smile on his face. Would highly recommend this to any parent or grandparent who has a young one that has to get glasses.

Arlo Needs Glasses has to be one of the cutest picture books I have ever seen. I'm not just saying that because the fuzzy dog is wearing some pretty rad glasses, or because my 5 year-old son came home from VPK talking about this book and insisting that I get a copy right away. (Ok, that does have something to do with it.) But honestly, I just think it's darling.

I wear glasses. My dad wears glasses. So does my husband and just about everyone in his family. My kids will probably wear them too. I still remember my first pair of glasses and how awful they were. I refused to wear them. I preferred to fail science than to wear those tortoise shell coke bottles. It is such a horrible feeling for kids. Arlo Needs Glasses handles the life changing event of getting glasses in a fun way, which makes the young readers realize that wearing glasses isn't so bad. (Did I also mention that this book promotes reading as a fun past time too? Bonus!)

This is a very fun read for younger kids. As I read it to my son (and he read it to me and my mom), we had fun playing with all the interactive pages. (Our favorite was trying different style glasses on Arlo and reading all the funny dog related book titles.) Next time you are at the library, check this one out! It won't disappoint.
