Some glasses are red,
Some glasses are blue,
I think your glasses look great on you!
– excerpt from Glasses, a board book
We’re celebrating the recent release of Glasses (a board book written by Ann Zawistoski of Little Four Eyes and published by Peeps Eyewear) with a huge rainbow-themed giveaway!
Why rainbows, you ask?
1. The Glasses board book features kids wearing glasses in tons of different shapes and sizes and every color of the rainbow! Here at Peeps, we just love the idea that glasses can help a child express his or her personal style.
2. Rainbows symbolize hope and acceptance. For many young children, glasses are a hard adjustment; they’re a new (and sometimes uncomfortable) thing to wear on your face and many times children don’t know anyone else their age who wears them. “Glasses” shows kids that glasses can be a normal part of childhood, and how glasses can be fun. We think that the moment a child understands that and feels better is like a rainbow after the storm.
3. Rainbows are just plain fun! They’re bright and colorful, and it’s so exciting when you get to see one in the sky. Even Princess Annie loves rainbows!
