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.
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!
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.
