Mom isn't having much fun today. With lots to do, the world just blends into the background. When Lulu finds her rose-colored glasses, she encourages Mom to try them on and is undeterred until she does.
The story is timeless, endearing, and simply presented. Kids and adults alike will enjoy this book.
When we finished reading this the first time, our preschooler handed me the rose colored glasses and then proceeded to quote the last few pages of the book. Our preschooler requests the book or will just sit down and look at the pictures (she loves how the rainbow grows). The rose-colored glasses and anything opaque with color (e.g., lids on disposable food containers) lead the way in her world of fun and discovery.
Needless to say, we've read this book lots of times since it arrived. The story is a great daily reminder for parents about how we lose our sense of what's important and why we had kids in the first place!
This is a picture book about how easy it can be to change your perspective on the world.
It's easy to bring this book alive. You can use the rose-colored glasses that come with the book to see new things; lay in the grass and look at the clouds; or just stop doing a chore and do something spontaneous with your child.
