My Travelin Eye is the story of a child who has an eye problem that causes her eye to turn in. The story takes you through the process of visting an eye doctor having the eye patched and getting a pair of glasses. It also deals with the reactions of the girl's classmates to the eye patch and new pair of glasses. This is a great book for teaching tolerance for those who may be a little bit different from ones self. A great book for school libraries or parents who have children with a smiliar eye problem.
This cheerful picture book by new author Jenny Sue Kostecki-Shaw is dear to my heart as my son also has a wandering or travelin¿ eye. I wish I¿d had this book when he had to wear a patch and glasses to school for the first time. Jenny Sue, in a loving manner, portrays, through her text and illustrations, what it is like for a child with a travelin¿ eye. In this semi-autobiography of herself as a little girl Jenny Sue describes how she saw the world with each eye and the gift each eye gave to her, one an artist and the other a navigator. However, when she had to wear a patch and glasses, how did she cope with suddenly seeing in a different way and with the pointing of the other children? Young readers will be entranced to find out. The mixed media illustrations are delightful and inspire children to turn the pages just to see what they can find in each picture: counting opportunities, finding objects, and trying Jenny Sue¿s art activities. Teachers and parents will also find this an inspiring book for their children with wandering eyes, or for a unit on understanding disabilities. This picture book is highly recommended for young children, ages 3-8.
