Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Arthur faces two different problems in these books. In the first one, he can't see so he has to get glasses, but he gets teased. So he quits wearing the glasses, which makes his problem even worse. Finally Arthur's teacher shows him how to be proud of his glasses. In the second story, Arthur's cold makes him self-conscious about his nose. He goes to a rhinologist to get a new nose, but his own is the only nose that looks right.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good book for young children March 27 2002
By A Customer
Arthur's Eyes is a tale about a Arthur getting his first pair of glasses, and
learning to be proud to wear them. Arthur is teased by his fellow
classmates and is embarrassed of having to wear glasses. He soon
learns that wearing glasses improves his school performance, and
eventually leads to his acceptance by his classmates. Arthur's Eyes
captured our attention with the colorful artwork, although at times the drawings were of low quality. The cover picture of Arthur is not the same picture portrayed in the actual book, and this maybe disappointing for children who are used to the PBS television show. However, the message the pictures convey are appropiate for the intended age group. The story is short enough for a young child to read in one sitting, which would be good for a bedtime story. Young children who read this book will learn to be proud of their personal image if they get eyeglasses. They will also learn to accept other children who wear glasses. We would recommend this book for classroom reading and as leisure reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars Arthur's Eyes March 27 2002
By Bethany
Overall we thought that this book was a good book for children. It was aimed for children at about the kindergarten to first grade level. A good aspect of this book is it is directed at boys and girls, something that would work well in a classroom. The moral of Arthur's Eyes is good for children because it will help them get over a fear of needing glasses at a young age. This is shown through ways that children can relate to such as doing well on a quiz, being able to see in class, and making baskets in a basketball game. This book also included humor that young children could relate to such as the incident when Arthur walked into the girl's bathroom and Francine was in there. This is something that children at this age would find hilarious.
The only thing in this book that we found to be unappealing to anyone is that Arthur looks nothing like he does in the well-known cartoon. Besides none of the characters looking like they should, all of the illustrations were terrible. Without knowing that this is supposed to be an Arthur story, children wouldn't recognize the characters by looking at the pictures and this could confuse a young mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars I thought it was a very good book. July 8 1998
By A Customer
I think it is really a good book beacause it shows the readers that you can be different and still be special in your own way. The glasses helped him to do everything better. I recommend the book. I think it gives the children a sense of self-esteem of you can look and be different but still be unique. Same way with Arthur and his friends. At first it was different for his friends to get used to him with glasses, but later he aced his tests and everyone wanted him to be on their basketball team. This is a wonderfully thoughtful book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed Sept. 20 2001
By A Customer
This book has absolutely horrible artwork in it. I bought my copy through the school system, and on the cover, they had a picture of Arthur like he looks on the TV show. However, inside the book, Arthur and his family look like rats, not like teddy bears. My kid couldn't even recognize the characters. He kept saying that this wasn't Arthur. I hope all the Arthur books aren't this shoddy, but I hestitate to buy another without flipping through it at a store. It literally looks like a child drew the pictures.
