I purchased this for a three year old Grandchild. I did not end up giving this book as I felt it started out
with a negative story line. Luna DID NOT LIKE HER GLASSES and LUNA DID NOT LIKE HER NAME!
I was looking for a story with positive encouragement for a child getting glasses for the very first time.
Had I not signed it prior to reading it I certainly would have returned it.

We got this book for our daughter when we found out that she was going to have to wear glasses. We were so upset for her and were so worried that she would not want to wear them in front of her friends that we decided to seek out some children's books that focused on a little girl having to wear glasses. The main character in the book Luna is so cute about her glasses. She wants to be just like everyone else and not have to wear glasses so she wakes up one morning and decides to go without. My daughter laughs every time we read this book at all the silly things Luna ends up doing during the day without her glasses. In the end she decides that she needs her glasses and also finds out the sweet story of how she got the name Luna, which is completely opposite of why she thought she was named that. I feel like this is a great book for children to read about how it is ok to be different.

BORING. Maybe because my son is only 3? Might be great if you were a five-year old girl? It's wordy and starts to tangent here and there... would think the publisher would have chopped it up in a few spots. Overall, it's always nice to have literature for our kids who wear glasses, and my son likes ANYTHING that shows other kids in glasses, which normalizes the process for him.

Very cute & effective book! Purchased it for my granddaughter, who at 5, is wearing glasses now. The book helped give her self assurance & feel pretty...

Not enough pictures. Story was not focused enough on the wear of glasses. It focused more on how unique the character was because of her name. My kids didnt like it. Reselling as soon as I can.

If I had a myopic five year old (or older) this would be perfect. Instead I have two year old who is far sighted with astigmatism. This may prove useful later on, but it seems to be written for an older child.

It is beautiful and entertaining, so I will keep it around.

My best friend's granddaughter loved this book. She recently has to wear glasses and did not want to do so. This book and a couple of others made all the difference in the world. I highly recommend this for any little person who may have to wear glasses!
Too long for young children. Too many words
