Specs for Rex by Yasmeen Ismail – OPTIONAL

Ismail, Yasmeen Specs for Rex Bloomsbury, 2015. $16.99 PICTURE BOOK
Rex has new glasses and he doesn’t want to wear them to school. This story is about the variety of ways he tries to hide them. He antics drive his teacher nuts, and eventually he must use his glasses to help out and discovers that glasses can be pretty great.
This is a great little story about acceptance, but it drove me up a wall watching him drive his teacher crazy. UGH! I didn’t car for the messy art style, though that’s an issue of taste really.
