K-Gr 2–After a vision screening at school, Wagner learns that he needs glasses. Although he is apprehensive about his classmates' reaction to his new look, Pearl puts a decidedly positive spin on his perceived misfortunes. She says that with glasses, he can look like a rock star, a scientist, or an actor. The added bonus is that the world will no longer look fuzzy. After Wagner's bout with name-calling bullies and Pearl's perfect reaction to the incident, their teacher makes wearing glasses the hot trend at school in an unexpected way. Not only will readers find a genuine tale of friendship and a respect for uniqueness in these pages, but also the anatomy of a pair of glasses and tips for glasses wearers. With its solid story line; controlled vocabulary; and detailed ink, watercolor, and colored-pencil illustrations, this book is an essential addition to the series.Lindsay Persohn, Crystal Lake Elementary, Lakeland, FL

This particular Dial Easy-To-Read Book titled "Pearl and Wagner Four Eyes" is characterized as a Level 2 reader which is described as "reading together, short sentences, and simple dialogue" though these standards can also qualify it as a Level 3 book in other series. My daughter was able to read the entire book independently, and here are some words within the book: "squinted", "chart", "flipped", "covered", "blinked", "scientist", "gasped", etc. There are three chapters in this book which focus on Wagner the mouse who has trouble reading and is diagnosed as needing glasses. With the help of his rabbit friend Pearl, Wagner learns to accept that he needs to wear glasses. He experiences a moment of doubt when two bullies tease him, but the support of his friends see him through. The colorful and vibrant illustrations make this book an engaging reading experience, and will serve to motivate young readers who are beginning to develop their reading fluency.
