H and I have spent three hours this morning having various eye tests at the hospital and the result is that he’s very long-sighted and needs glasses (and potentially a patch to correct a turn in one eye, but the glasses may sort that out by themselves) for the foreseeable future and the chances are he’ll be wearing them (or contacts) for the rest of his life.
So, as always in these situations, I want to turn to books as part of the way we’ll help him feel OK about all this. Not that I think there is anything AT ALL wrong with wearing glasses, more that it’s just going to be a big change for him initially. He’s only just turned two so he’s not overly bothered about it at the moment, but I want to make sure that from now on he sees as many positive role models as possible and that he sees himself in as many stories as possible.
Therefore, kind readers, I need your help please. I’d love to get as many recommendations as possible for books that you think H might enjoy now and in the future. Obviously we’re talking picture books for now but if you know of any great books that would work later on then I’ll happily hear about those too.
Many thanks in advance 🙂
