Glasses - Cover
Ann Gwinn Zawistoski, Peeps Eyewear 2014
Delightful photos of toddlers and young children wearing brightly-colored glasses and looking delighted and interested and happy. Simple text "Some glasses are red. Some glasses are blue. I think your glasses look great on you." Great toddler and pre-school book. One quibble - there’s a set of pictures, "Glasses on boys, glasses on girls, with your glasses on you see the world!" -- we recommend reading it, "Glasses on one child, glasses on another, with your glasses on you see each other."
