The Patch by Justina Chen Headley, Mitch Vane

The kids at school want to know why Becca is wearing glasses and a patch. Instead of telling them she has amblyopia, Becca leads her friends on imaginative adventures to explain her new fashion accessory. Mitch Vane's illustrations capture the spunky exuberance of this resourceful heroine.

This story is about an early elementary school age girl, Becca, who is diagnosed with a "lazy eye". Our granddaughter who is 3 1/2 liked the story, but I think it would be better suited for a 7 year old. It does a nice job of explaining the diagnosis in the doctor's office, and follows with a series of imaginary games which involve a patch.
