Book Description

Samantha returns to school as a sixth grader and discovers that there is something unusual going on with her vision. Sentences look blurry causing her to have trouble reading. Her mother makes her an appointment with the eye doctor and she soon learns about what it's like to have glasses for the first time.

This is the fifth book written by 13-year-old Jessica Arnold, who became an author at seven years old with her positive story, "I am Good at Lots of Things." Later, she followed up with "Noboby Can Take My Happy Away." Jessica's lively illustrations and vivid imagination make the "My Glasses" come to life.

- This book was reformatted and the story was extended. It has many illustrations that are part of the story.

This is a great ebook for a young person that needs to get glasses. I had to get glasses at a young age and I experienced many of the things that this ebook brings out.

This ebook was well written, interesting and describes the whole process of getting an eye exam. I liked this ebook very much and recommend it for a parent that has a child that needs to get an eye exam and might need to wear glasses.

4.0 out of 5 stars Getting New Glasses July 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Samantha's visit to the optometrist's office is a very pleasant experience. She describes the eye exam and the fun she has picking out a pair of frames. The only bad thing about the visit is that she has to wait several days before she can take her new glasses home.

When she wears the new glasses to school, she is amazed at how much better she can see. Samantha is loving her new glasses UNTIL a girl in her class calls her "Four Eyes" and teases her about the glasses. Samantha cries and takes her glasses off for the rest of the day. She doesn't like being teased.

Samantha's mother helps her "SEE" that she needs to wear the glasses and she does not need a friend that teases her.

I got my first pair of glasses when I was in the second grade. I am very near-sighted and it seems like I have been wearing glasses or contact lens for my entire life. I am happy to see a story written about this subject.

Jessica Arnold has written a first-person account about how it feels to get glasses for the first time. She has done an excellent job describing this experience from a child's point-of-view.

I love to see children writing, illustrating and publishing books. The Kindle has opened a wonderful door of opportunity for young writers and artists. This book should make the experience of getting glasses a little easier for children who read this book.

The illustrations are hand-drawn line drawings that are colored with crayons or colored pencils. It appears that the images were cut out and glued onto background paper to make a collage.

I would like to suggest some work on the formatting of this book. The first four illustrations are placed on the page with the text. The rest of the story is shown with no illustrations.

5.0 out of 5 stars I See a Bright Future for This Author! April 18, 2013
By Grampy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"My Glasses" by Jessica Arnold is a children's book, about a young girl, Samantha, whose eyesight starts to get fuzzy, so her parents take her to an optometrist for a checkup. The doctor quickly determines that she needs glasses, so she picks out some nice purple and pink frames, and can't wait until her new glasses arrive, because she was amazed at how much clearer things looked when the doctor was testing her vision.

The amazing thing about this book is the author: Jessica Arnold started writing her first book when she was seven years old, finishing it when she was twelve. It was published under the title, "I am Good at Lots of Things", and was intended to help kids feel good about themselves.

In "My Glasses" she continues that strategy, because when Samantha gets her glasses she is very excited, and can't wait to get to school to show off her new purple and pink frames and glasses. But almost as soon as she sits down in her first class, a girl right behind her whispers, "four eyes". Samantha is stunned, and turns to ask the girl, "Why did you call me that?" The girl replies, "because you wear glasses." Samantha quietly takes off her glasses and slips them into a pocket, where no one can see them, all the while trying to hold back her tears.

That scenario no doubt plays out hundreds of times every day across the country, with bullies and just plain meanies putting down other people who are different in any way. But Jessica Arnold continues writing the story, until the full scenario plays itself out.

Samantha's friend asks her, "Weren't you wearing glasses this morning? What happened to them?" Samantha denies having glasses, even after other friends begin to contradict her.

This book is nice for young readers. Easy words and fun illustrations make this book the best it can be. Also it teaches to accept differences and how to get over teasing.

More About the Author

Jessica Arnold was born in Owosso, Michigan in 1999. She enjoys writing and illustrating stories for young children and her peers. Her first book, I am Good at Lots of Things was started when she was just seven and completed when she was twelve. Jessica was a hit on Amazon at the age of twelve with I am Good at Lots of Things. Her book about bullying Nobody Can Take My Happy Away sometimes surpasses traditionally published titles in popularity. At the age of fourteen, Jessica simply writes what she feels her peers would like to hear on a number of topics.

Jessica's first book was something her mother encouraged her to write. I am Good at Lots of Things was a story she began writing and illustrating when she was just seven. She was upset by the challenges she faced at school. She was reminded that we are all individuals with different talents, and she wanted to share that. Jessica is inspired to write by her own personal experiences. Her stories often begin with ordinary circumstances such as going to the optometrist for glasses or playing video games. If something resonates with Jessica, she begins with her notebook and pencil, framing out her story page by page. Next, she begins illustrating the story with color pencils or water color. Her expressive artistic style is unique to anything seen before.

Jessica's fictional characters evolve in every story. Jessica's characters face difficulties, disabilities and emotional challenges, but they always prevail, inform and unite people. Jessica wrote a story about being thankful for the gifts that she had been given instead of thinking about what she wasn't good at. Jessica feels that book publishing has a bright future because it is now open to a more diverse group of writers. She is honored to have the opportunity to be a young author who can write and speak directly to young readers and inspire them.
