Glance is a little bug, who happens to be near-sighted. Though he has a pair of eyeglasses that make it so he can see properly, he is sick and tired of his classmates teasing him about wearing them. But the Bugglet is about to meet a kind-hearted hermit, and the wise old fellow wants to show Glance the tremendous benefits that glasses can bring to him. This book is especially useful for a visually impaired child who must wear corrective lenses and is reluctant at first. It also illustrates - with a little clarification from the teacher or parent - how important it is for the child to use whatever aids are available to function independently, i.e. white cane or glasses. Children will readily identify with Glance's predicament!
