Rhyming, sing-song prose and bright, inviting illustrations are sure to draw little readers to Scarlett’s Spectacles. I can easily see this becoming one of those books that’s read so often, everyone has is memorized before long.

This board book follows Scarlett through her days as she exchanges her grumpy glasses to ones that view circumstances and daily activities through a thankful heart. What an excellent lesson for children to learn early in life.

Children can grumble and whine about many things throughout the day. When a lovely little girl named Scarlett grumbles throughout the day, her mom knows she must do something to change the way Scarlett gets through each day.

Scarlett’s Spectacles by Janet Surette is a whimsical story sure to win over the heart of any child. When Scarlett tires of her own grumpiness, she takes her mother’s suggestion to exchange her grumpy glasses for a glad pair.

This is an interesing children's book about a girl named Scarlett who always wears her grumpy glasses and tends to be grouchy throughout the day. She learns to wear her glad glasses and to be happy about the things that happen and for what she has.

I read it to my granddaughter and she engaged with the story and the pictures quite well. However, the idea of glasses was too abstract for her and she couldn't understand why they threw the grumpy glasses out. It could just as well have been a book

My husband and my four-year-old wear glasses so all four of my kids are always fascinated by glasses books. In this case, Scarlett's glasses are actually metaphorical glasses meant to represent her outlook. Will she choose to put on glasses that show her everything that could be better? Or glasses of gratitude? This book brought about some great discussion, and we all lived the illustrations, too. Scarlett also happens to be a big fan of piggies, just like my three-year-old.
