Meet Douglas, a dog with a big problem: he needs eyeglasses but doesn’t know it, and his bad eyesight tends to land him in some pretty hairy situations.

Readers will laugh along with the new picture book character Douglas as he chases a leaf that he mistakes for a squirrel, walks through wet cement because he can’t see the warning sign, and annoys the neighbor’s dog by mistakenly eating out of his bowl. And when Douglas’s owner Nancy finally takes him to what is clearly an eyeglass store and Douglas asks, “Why are you taking me to a shoe store?” everyone will be giggling. 

After an eye exam confirms that Douglas needs glasses, and Nancy helps him find the perfect pair, readers will rejoice with Douglas as he sees all the amazing things he’s been missing!

Both kids and parents will laugh out loud—and may even recognize themselves!—while reading this utterly irresistible, hilarious picture book.

The Review: As soon as I heard about this book I just knew it was one my daughter and I had to read. It's been a while since we last reviewed a children's book together and Douglas, You Need Glasses! was definitely the perfect choice.Douglas is a dog. He's near sighted. He chases leaves instead of squirrels. And he's always mistaking animals like cats for crabs. It's safe to say Douglas's eye's really get him mixed up. So the only option for his owner - Nancy, is for her to take him to the eye doctors for some glasses. 

Douglas, You Need Glasses! is an enjoyable read for the whole family to enjoy time and time again. It's the right length of a story so your little ones can't get distracted and it also provides some very detailed and funny illustrations to keep them entertained. It also offers some real life events that may even help your little if they are in the same situation as Douglas. I'm definitely going to have to buy a hard copy of this book for my daughter so she can take it into school for story time. 

Thank you to Geb Adamson & Kate Ormand for giving me the opportunity to review this book in exchange for an honest review.
