Here to Help: Books about New Glasses

Children's Services Staff Image

By sharing stories together and having conversations about the books you read, you can help young children understand the world around them. Seeing diverse experiences represented in books helps children to explore their own identities and develop empathy for others.

Eyeglasses show a whole new world, but can bring a set of challenges. These titles are about adjusting to life with glasses in early childhood.

Not every book is available at all locations, but any title can be requested. The children’s librarian at your neighborhood library is also here to help, with suggestions for additional titles on topics of interest–or feel free to suggest some titles to us.  New books are always being added to the collection.
