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

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.

If I had a myopic five year old (or older) this would be perfect. Instead I have two year old who is far sighted with astigmatism. This may prove useful later on, but it seems to be written for an older child.

It is beautiful and entertaining, so I will keep it around.

My best friend's granddaughter loved this book. She recently has to wear glasses and did not want to do so. This book and a couple of others made all the difference in the world. I highly recommend this for any little person who may have to wear glasses!

We got this book for our daughter when we found out that she was going to have to wear glasses. We were so upset for her and were so worried that she would not want to wear them in front of her friends that we decided to seek out some children's books that focused on a little girl having to wear glasses. The main character in the book Luna is so cute about her glasses. She wants to be just like everyone else and not have to wear glasses so she wakes up one morning and decides to go without. My daughter laughs every time we read this book at all the silly things Luna ends up doing during the day without her glasses. In the end she decides that she needs her glasses and also finds out the sweet story of how she got the name Luna, which is completely opposite of why she thought she was named that. I feel like this is a great book for children to read about how it is ok to be different.

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.

BORING. Maybe because my son is only 3? Might be great if you were a five-year old girl? It's wordy and starts to tangent here and there... would think the publisher would have chopped it up in a few spots. Overall, it's always nice to have literature for our kids who wear glasses, and my son likes ANYTHING that shows other kids in glasses, which normalizes the process for him.
