Overview

An Oppenheim Toy Portfolio 2014 Gold Seal Best Book Award Winner

Does a worm need sunglasses?
Would a goat rather wear,
or eat, a pair of glasses?

This latest title in the Think About …series presents a series of goofy questions about the visual capacity of various animals and equally silly pictures of eyeglass-wearing oysters, owls, monkeys, etc.

Simple, clear explanations about the eyesight of these animals lead into an exploration of why some people need glasses, and other vision-related conditions and products.

In line with the Common Core's emphasis on compare-and-contrast, the Think About . . . series includes activities and discussion points for kids, parents, and educators that further extend each topic's range and application. This title explores the eyes and sight abilities of various animals—and why most don't need or won't ever wear glasses.
