This is a fun read for any child who may need glasses. It whimsically pictures what animals would look like with glasses styled for them. It is written in a fast paced rhyme - "Fancy glasses for the snake. Chimp needs glasses that won't break." and the illustrations are bright and suited for each animal.

I support independent bookstores. You can use this link to find one near you or order Who Wears Glasses

this book is great to show how being different is good a thing. It shows kids just because you have something other kids dont doesnt mean its a bad thing. I would definitely read this book to a K or 1st grade classroom.

This is a great book to read at the beginning of the year or when a student gets glasses. It is a book about all different types of glasses and why the different animals need them. Such a good book to have in a classroom.

Illustrations and rhyming text reveal which animals might enjoy different sorts of eyewear, from fancy glasses for a snake to swimming goggles for a shark.

I would have loved this book when I got my glasses. I got them when I was around 5 and hated them. Good for kids having to wear glasses for the first time.

I got this at the library to help ease Cal into the whole wearing glasses concept. It's a cute and rhyme-y and about animals wearing glasses. I like to think that it helped him with the transition...

This is a cute book that talks about the different animals and people who wear glasses. Good for first time readers and lower level readers.
-great book to use for students that are having bad feelings about wearing glasses
- the illustrations will draw student attention
-rhymes help to make this somewhat of a predictable text
