Baby Duck and the Bad Eyeglassesby Amy Hest, Jill Barton (Illustrator)
Baby Duck has new glasses, and when she looks in the mirror, she doesn't look like Baby Duck anymore. No one can convince Baby Duck that she looks just fine with her new glasses on--until Grampa comes to play. As always, Grampa has a surprising way of cheering up Baby Duck. Amy Hest and Jill Barton, the creators of In the Rain with Baby Duck, tell another endearing story about plucky Baby Duck and her kindly grandfather. Full color.

Baby Duck is unhappy about the new glasses she has to wear because she thinks she can no longer hop, dance, or play or they will fall off. She also thinks she looks ugly in them. But, her bespeckled grandfather saves the day by reaassuring her about her glasses. He says they ¿are very fine . . .[b]ecause they are red like mine.¿ He convinces her that they won¿t fall off when she plays by having her splash in water and twirl around. Finally, he gives her a surprise ¿ a new little boat with her name on it ¿ which she can now read with her new glasses. Heartwarming, beautifully illustrations and large text make up for the somewhat skimpy story. Recommended for ages 2 to 8 and highly recommended for those with eyeglasses or young friends or family members who just got eyeglasses.
