I am a Montessori teacher. I purchased this book to read to my preschool classroom (ages 3-6) as part of a unit about eyes and to prepare them for a visit from a local optometrist. The class really enjoyed the book. They found it entertaining and highly interesting. I read a previous review which described the book as boring, but I thought it was very well written and very interesting to the children. I appreciated the explanations and level of detail it provided.The book goes into detail about the equipment and steps used in an optometric examination (it specifically discusses and explains Snellen Charts, Autorefractors, the Phoropter, etc). It is one of the very best books on optometry and eyes for children in this age group (the only one that even comes close, in my opinion, is the out of print Take Care Of Your Eyes (Rookie Read-About Health)Rookie Books Take Care of Your Eyes). I would think it would be a great book to read to children before their first eye exam, and a book every optometrist in American would want in their book corner.
This book is great! My husband is an optometrist and I've been looking for books that would explain to our 4-year old son more about what Papa does everyday, and this one is by far the most accurate and interesting book I have found. We even ordered an extra copy for my husband's practice and my son's preschool. The story is about a boy who needs glasses and visits the eyedoctor. The process of an eye exam, as well as some equipment is explained in easy terms. It's a great book to read to your child before going to the optometrist!
As an optometrist, I was looking for a book to place in my waiting room for my young patients. This book does a great job of explaining each piece of equipment that we use in our office with proper terminology (autorefractor, optometrist, etc.) A great find!
My child was bored after the third page. I invented my own words to go with the pictures instead. Boooooring writing. I'm sick of children's book authors who write for themselves rather than kids.
