I bought this book when I found out my 3 year old son needed glasses. It really helped! It has an engaging story and makes getting glasses a little more fun. The interactive parts of the book were a plus, especially the different pairs of glasses not only for Arlo to try on, but my son too! After 3 years, this is still one of my son's favorite books. He's taken good care of it, but it's starting to show wear from so much use. I'm going to surprise him with a new copy.
Edit: I originally rated this 5 stars, but knocked it down to 3 after I received the new version of the book. My son was so disappointed that the book was changed from the original. There is no longer a pull-out phoropter, just a flap to lift. The last page no longer has a pop-up of Arlo's favorite books, just a flat illustration. I'm planning to return it.
