Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Getting glasses may be traumatic for some kids and this story will be a bit reassuring. Nomi has just turned seven and after blowing out seven candles plus one on her birthday cake, her fathers says that she is bound to have good luck. Nomi, it turns out, is having trouble seeing the blackboard and she squints and stumbles over things. Sure enough, she needs glasses. Within a week she is sporting a new pair of orange glasses and telling her friends all about the eye examination. It is no surprise that all of her younger siblings also want glasses. The best news is that Nomi can now see everything clearly—that is her good luck. While the premise is a bit thin, the information about eye exams, the value of glasses and how to care for them is important. London has crafted a useful book and one that schools and libraries should have in their collections, although it is not likely to be one that kids will read over and over. There is a page of instructions directed to family members who will be assisting new readers. A Level 3 book in the "Hello Reader" series. 2000, Cartwheel/Scholastic, . Ages 6 to 8.
