Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Arthur the aardvark is having trouble with his eyes - he needs glasses! When he wears glasses to school everybody teases him. He tries to lose the glasses, but this leads to some embarrassing situations - such as when he enters the girls' bathroom. Arthur decides he's better off wearing his glasses after all. This early adventure in the popular Arthur series skillfully handles a difficult situation.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Arthur faces two different problems in these books. In the first one, he can't see so he has to get glasses, but he gets teased. So he quits wearing the glasses, which makes his problem even worse. Finally Arthur's teacher shows him how to be proud of his glasses. In the second story, Arthur's cold makes him self-conscious about his nose. He goes to a rhinologist to get a new nose, but his own is the only nose that looks right. (4-8)

    Cool Arthur Book (by Neti)

    This book is about Arthur before he got his glasses. Arthur couldn't see well and sometimes he got headaches. My favorite part is when went in the girls room and Francine was in the girls room. When she saw him she started to scream.

    Serves a purpose of teaching

    It helped my granddaughter adjust to her new glasses at age two. Her preschool teacher shared it with the class to make her feel special and to get excited about wearing the glasses. I would recommend it to any parent of a young child going thru the adjustment.

    Arthur's Eyes (Arthur Adventures Series)

    Arthur's eyes was about him getting glasses because he could barely see. I thought it was good because it was funny and I was happy because now that Arthur can see he wouldn't go into the girls' restroom. I would give it to a friend because it is good. My favorite part was when Francine wore big, big glasses.

    Arthur's Eyes (Arthur Adventures Series)

    Arthur's eyes was about how Arthur did not like his glasses. It was as weird as swimming in shark infested water. You would like this book because Arthur went into the girls' bathroom. That was my favorite part.
