This book is about Arthur getting glasses. At first the children in his class make fun of him because he cannot do anything right with out the glasses and then they say he looks goofy with the glasses. But once Arthur gets glasses and is able to do good in basketball and do well on his school work, people start to like him, especially Francine. This book is good for kids going to new schools to recognize that everyone is different and that making fun of one another is not nice.
This is a story about being accepted. Arthur's bad eye sight made it hard for him to see and do everyday things. He didn't want to get glasses and be made fun of by his peers, so he refused to wear his glasses. Once he found out that the teacher had glasses, he realized they weren't so bad. And once he accepted his glasses, so did everyone else.This story helps students see that we all have our own needs and sometimes being different is a good thing and we have to just accept that.
Arthur decided to stop wearing his glass because he keeps teased, but everything goes wrong when he accidentally goes into the girls room. This would a great book when I am discussing bullying. It was yet another good Marc Brown book.
