When I was growing up, I was one of the first I knew to get glasses - the only one in kindergarten with them. But they were so helpful. I literally was running into walls before I got them! A book like this would be very helpful for explaining to little kids in a non-threatening way that glasses are ok.
Parents are encouraged to share their own pictures of their children in their glasses using the hashtag #douglasyouneedglasses.
