Edit: I originally rated this 5 stars, but knocked it down to 3 after I received the new version of the book. My son was so disappointed that the book was changed from the original. There is no longer a pull-out phoropter, just a flap to lift. The last page no longer has a pop-up of Arlo's favorite books, just a flat illustration. I'm planning to return it.

Arlo, (A slightly humanised pet dog) is no longer enjoying games and stories because he can't see very well, he visits the optician, here the reader is introduced to the process of a sight test and helpfully named equipment.
Next, Arlo gets to try out several pairs of themed glasses eg 'Rock Star' glasses! You get to pull these glasses out of their pockets and try them on a pop up Arlo - or yourself! He finally finds the perfect pair, and the story ends with Arlo enjoying all his favourite things again!
Really funny illustrations, my son loves the book, it's a great message - glasses are brilliant, cool and are good for you!
This is the best book for children who are new to (or already wear) glasses, have bought others that don't come over positively.
A ball on a ribbon you can throw to Arlo (velcro attachment).
Many glasses to try on yourself or a prop up image of Arlo. (stored in little pockets)
A pull out section to change the image of the eye chart from sharp to blurry.
My 2.5 year old loves it but we always make sure she is supervised with it.
I recommend to everyone who's 1-4 year old are getting their first glasses.
It really helped and she talked about Arlo at the beginning when adapting to her glasses.
Nice images and the glasses are a great idea for kids to interact with the book.
