We all know that kids love to fit in! For some kids finding out they need to wear glasses can be nerve-wracking, as they don’t want to stand out. Others are desperate to get specs, even if they don’t need them. Getting your first pair can be a big deal but once kids realise what their glasses can do for them, they’ll soon be big fans.
Picture books can help prepare little ones for the experience of getting glasses, and books about children wearing glasses for older kids allow them to think of themselves as heroes/ heroines too.
These books all feature awesome characters, who just happen to wear glasses. We all know Harry Potter, but there are plenty of other great books out there and the kids will feel even more connected to characters who are similar to them.
We hope these books will help convince everyone that specs are spectacular.
