PreS-K–Poor Pedro Pony! While playing with Peppa and George, his glasses fly off. After Peppa rescues the glasses, her interest in glasses is piqued. “Peppa likes Pedro’s glasses. She wants some, too.” She visits Pedro’s eye doctor father for an eye exam, but the result is not what Peppa expected–she has perfect eyesight. Fortunately, Mr. Pony has a perfect solution: a fun, heart-shaped pair of sunglasses for Peppa! The outlined, one-dimensional illustrations with colorful full-page backgrounds feature the friendly, rounded shapes of the characters from the TV show. Peppa’s direct tone and desires reflect a young child’s world, and the basic description of eye exams will help the curious or those getting glasses.
VERDICT Short sentences and simple vocabulary describe the eye exam process and will appeal to the beginning reader and fans of Peppa Pig.
