Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3?Nearsighted Luna hates wearing glasses, and she hates her name, which she believes her parents chose because they favor tuna fish. One night, she dreams she can see everything perfectly. But when she tries doing without her glasses the next day, she bumps into things and has several near misses. When her father tells her that she is special and that she was actually named after the moon, she immediately cheers up and announces that she doesn't mind wearing glasses anymore. Readers will find it difficult to believe that Luna, who can supposedly see well up close, would actually stir the goldfish instead of a pot of soup or eat cat treats instead of cookies. Also, her complete change of heart is much too abrupt to be credible. In watercolor cartoon drawings with ink cross-hatching, Morris depicts the child wearing yellow frames with red polka dots?her choice, admittedly, but they are so outlandishly big on her face that it is little wonder she hates them. For a more humorous treatment of the subject, try Lane Smith's Glasses?Who Needs 'Em? (Viking, 1991).?Marianne Saccardi, Norwalk Community-Technical College, CT

We also have books like Arthur's Eyes, Glasses for D.W. and Good Luck Glasses...all three of these are also excellent.

My 4-year-old daughter was actually excited about getting glasses...until we read this book. After picking out her new frames, we were about to leave the ophthalmalogist's office when she saw this book and asked me to read it to her. I figured it would be a cute book and couldn't hurt. Now I wish I could go back in time and tell her no. Yes, it's a cute book, but boy did it set us back. It created the idea in her head that she shouldn't like her glasses. Now she keeps saying she doesn't want to get glasses. And she was excited about them before reading this book! We'll see what happens once her glasses arrive, but I REALLY regret reading this book to her.

Great book, not only for kids with glasses, but any child. Easy to read outloud, and lots of clever ideas.
Must have for any parent!

This book hadn't been published when my daughter got her glasses as a pre-schooler. Wish it had been. A great daddy-daughter story especially when her father tenderly explains that while her glasses do make her different, she's also different because of her charm, her wit, and her curiosity. A book that affirms self-discovery, self-acceptance and the value of a sense of humor.

I was hoping this book would be good for my 3yr old son who just got glasses. It's a cute story, but probably more for a school age child, not a preschooler.

I just purchased this book for my 7-year old daughter, and I have to say it was a PERFECT choice. I am so glad that I was able to find something like this for my daughter who just got bi-focals. It's a nice way to open the lines of communication with your child. I have been feeling a little down myself since we found out she needed glasses and this book helped me too! (I got a little emotional). Highly recommend for a school age little girl.

This sensitive, whimsical tale of coping with ones uniqueness is one of my favorite stories for my kindergarten students. The language is rich and descriptive. The illustrations are vivid and immaginative. My students laugh at the funny parts and they understand the heart of the story-regardless of ones differences, be they bespectacled or of uncommon name, each person is valuable just by being him or herself. "Way to go!" Ms. Day and Mr. Morris! Michael Stanley, Kindergarten Teacher, City Heights, San Diego

We like to have books in our Family Eye Care Clinic for kids to read while they're waiting for the Doctor, it just seems fitting to have books about glasses/seeing the eye doctor. I found this book to be an exceptional book to have in the waiting area. We also have books like Arthur's Eyes, Glasses for D.W. and Good Luck Glasses...all three of these are also excellent.
