“Most dinosaurs ate plants,” Pedro. –Who Needs Glasses
Who Needs Glasses?
by Fran Manushkin
AR Test, Diverse Characters
Pedro needs glasses, but he doesn’t want to wear them. Katie also needs glasses, but she isn’t afraid to wear them. She knows that glasses help her see. She even thinks they look good on her. While working on a class project, Katie finds a way to prove that glasses are great!
Who Needs Glasses? doesn’t only focus on how glasses help Pedro and Katie see better. It also has some fun dino facts that teach new vocabulary. In addition, while working on a school project, each student has to use their talents to complete the project. The diverse group of students demonstrates good teamwork.
Although Who Needs Glasses? is part of a series, and has many of the same characters, the stories do not have to be read in order. To help younger readers build reading fluency, the story has short chapters, easy vocabulary, and four or fewer simple sentences per page.
Cute, full-color illustrations appear on every page, showing Katie and her diverse classmates. The end of the book contains a glossary, questions, writing prompts as well as a craft. Katie Woo is an engaging story that will help beginning readers become confident readers. Readers who enjoy the Katie Woo series should also try the Pedro series because it has many of the same characters and is written in the same format.
