Meet Douglas, a dog with a big problem: he needs eyeglasses but doesn’t know it, and his bad eyesight tends to land him in some pretty hairy situations. Readers will laugh along with the new picture book character Douglas as he chases a leaf that he mistakes for a squirrel, walks through wet cement because he can’t see the warning sign, and annoys the neighbor’s dog by mistakenly eating out of his bowl. And when Douglas’s owner Nancy finally takes him to what is clearly an eyeglass store and Douglas asks, “Why are you taking me to a shoe store?” everyone will be giggling.  After an eye exam confirms that Douglas needs glasses, and Nancy helps him find the perfect pair, readers will rejoice with Douglas as he sees all the amazing things he’s been missing! Both kids and parents will laugh out loud—and may even recognize themselves!—while reading this utterly irresistible, hilarious picture book.

Cutie Pie #2 picked this book up from the library because it is a part of the Sunshine State Readers Award for the 2017-2018 school year.
Douglas, You Need Glasses! is a cute and fun story about a dog that has a very hard time seeing clearly. He chases leaves thinking that he is actually chasing a squirrel. He sometimes ends up at his neighbor's house eating another dog's food because he thinks he is actually at home. So his owner, Nancy takes him to the eyeglass store for an eye exam. And after the eye exam, Douglas gets his first pair of glasses. Which makes it so much easier for him to see and have fun.
I really enjoyed reading this story with my girls. I don't have as bad of eye sight as Douglas does, but it is really amazing how much clearer someone can see when they have the right glasses. I think this is a wonderful story to read with kids that are worried or scared of going to the eye doctor. Definitely a great book to read with kids that are getting their first pair of glasses too, they will be able to relate to Douglas and have a good example of how clearer their surroundings are when they have glasses to wear.
This book is recommended for the age range of 3-7, but I think some older kids will still enjoy reading this book. Both of my girls enjoyed this story. I am really liked this story and am glad that we read it. I recommend giving this book a read.
