Each book in the 12-book Think About... series opens with a helpful letter to parents explaining ways to use the book\'s material. Does an Owl Wear Eyeglasses? explores the eyes and sight-abilities of various animals--and why most don\'t need or won\'t ever wear glasses. A funny, kid-like question (\"Does a fish wear sunglasses?\") is shown with a silly scenario (a fish in shades), and a few thoughts and facts about why that animal isn\'t compatible with optic-wear, and how their lives are affected by the advantages and limitations of their natural sight. This leads into an exploration of how humans are able to improve their natural sight (and see things well beyond what 20/20 vision offers) and how people with vision limitations handle their daily lives. A final spread offers activities that further extend a child\'s grasp of the featured topic. Humorous, entertaining, smart: Highly praised for engaging kids with a spot-on mix of silly and smart. An insightful approach: By contrasting the behavior of people and animals, the series helps young children understand what makes humans, and themselves, unique. Common Core Compatible: Exactly on-point with the Common Core\'s emphasis on compare-and-contrast; includes activities and discussion points that further extend each topic\'s range and application. \"[Offers] a reassuring [and] humorous approach to child-development issues...Parents and children will both appreciate these small-format picture books.\" --SLJ
