From the bestselling author of Beautiful Oops! comes an inspiring story for every child who needs or wears glasses.
One out of four kids either wears or needs glasses, and their parents will want their child to feel that glasses are awesome because they’re cool, fun, and enable us to do all the things we want to do. That’s where Arlo steps in. He’s a shaggy, free-spirited dog who loves to play catch, until one day he can’t see the ball anymore. He needs glasses!

Created by Barney Saltzberg, the bespectacled author of the bestselling title Beautiful Oops!, Arlo Needs Glasses is an inventive and reassuring story that gets it. Readers will follow along with Arlo as he does all the big firsts involved in getting glasses—visit a doctor, get tested on an eye chart, look through the phoropter. And then the fun part—choosing frames! What should Arlo get? Movie star glasses? Superhero glasses? Classic frames that never go out of style?
Originally published as an interactive novelty book, Arlo Needs Glasses is as necessary and inspiring as ever: Arlo puts on his new glasses and look–now he can catch again. Glasses rock!
