In this inventive, interactive picture book created by Barney Saltzberg, the bespectacled author of Beautiful Oops! , who charms young readers and their parents with a perfect light touch and joyful spirit, kids get to do just what Arlo does to solve his problem. They read an eye chart, look through a fold-out phoropter (that big machine optometrists use), and try on different pairs of glasses - movie star glasses! superhero glasses! mad scientist glasses! And they interact with Arlo as he rediscovers how to be the best ball-catcher in the neighbourhood and picks up a new favourite pastime along the way - reading! One out of five school-age children needs glasses. Arlo will show them just how lucky they are.
