Pam Calvert has written a much needed book that highlights the beauty and wit of being a princess in glasses. My four year old loved this book and was delighted that she wore glasses. She had wanted to take her glasses off when playing dress-up as "no princesses wear glasses" Now, the glasses stay on! Her favorite part is when Princess peepers mistakes the Dog for the Grand Matron, she laughes every time we read it!

Ah, the perfect marriage. Not necessarily between a prince and a princess, but between the writing and the illustration. Tuesday Mourning's illustrations are light, bright and a little silly, and the perfect match for Pam Calvert's writing which is also light, bright and a little silly. I bought this purple and pink princess book for my sixteen-month-old son for three reasons. First, Pam Calvert offered to send me bookplate signed for my son, and I'm a sucker for a signed book or bookplate. Second, I started wearing glasses when I was six -- I probably needed them when I was four, but that is another story -- and my husband wears glasses, so there is a good chance that our little boy's beautiful blue eyes will one day become nearsighted. And third, I don't believe in "gender" books. If we adhered to "gender" books, half of the population would never read "Huckleberry Finn", and the other half would never read "Alice in Wonderland", and since they both have been banned books, don't you want to read them now to see what all the fuss was about?  Anyway, don't shy away from this purple and pink princess book for a little boy. A good story is a good story, no matter who the protagonist.

This is a very cute book about a little princess who loves her glasses till all the other princesses make fun of her. She decides she doesn't need her glasses and goes through a series of problems because she cannot see. She mistakes a pony for a princess, a dog for the Grand Matron, and the prince for a horse. In the end, she finds out the prince wears glasses too and it is better to be able to see. And they all live happily ever after.I loved this story. It had very pretty pictures and the lesson it teaches is perfect for children who may be self-consious about wearing glasses. If my little girl has to wear glasses, like her daddy, I will be sure to remember this book.This would be a good book to read aloud to children. It could be used to encourage children to wear their glasses and for other children to not make fun of them. I would also suggest this book to the parents of these children so that they could help them get through a tough period of adjustment to new glasses.

My 4 year old asked me why no princesses wear glasses. After searching and reading reviews, I discovered "Princess Peepers". I bought it without reading it first. Unfortunately, while the story ends happily, it brings up teasing and name calling of the princess wearing glasses. My daughter had never been teased or exposed to this before so I cut out the pages where the other princesses call her names. She still picked up on the gist of the story being that glasses were "different" and therefore girls didn't appreciate them. That night, for the first time ever, she refused to wear her glasses. So, it kind of backfired for us. I think that if you have a child who experiences teasing or is self-conscious about glasses, it's a great book. But, it wasn't quite right for our daughter.
