It's Only Ink!
I Wish I Had Glasses Like Rosa
We've all been through it--especially girls--wanting to be just like our best friend. In "I Wish I Had Glasses Like Rosa" by Kathryn Heling and Deborah Hembrook, little Abby wishes she had glasses like her friend Rosa.
Abby wore her grandmother's reading glasses, but everything looked funny. She wore her swim goggles, but it wasn't the same. She even wore glasses she made from clay, but they drooped.
Abby really wanted glasses like Rosa, but Rosa wanted freckles like Abby!
In "I Wish I Had Glasses Like Rosa" children are reminded to like themselves just the way they are. Self-esteem and self-confidence are extremely important in young children. Best friends are just as important.
Bonnie Adamson's watercolor illustrations brighten each page--bringing Abby and Rosa to life.
Children ages 4-8 are sure to love "I Wish I Had Glasses Like Rosa" by Kathryn Heling and Deborah Hembrook. This reviewer and her children highly recommends this charming book.
This book would make a wonderful addition to every elementary classroom and library.
"I Wish I Had Glasses Like Rosa" is part of a series. Look for more from authors Kathryn Heling and Deborah Hembrook at Raven Tree Press.
