Arthur's Eyes: An Arthur Adventure Reviews

    “Arthur’s Eyes” is the second book in Marc Brown’s famous “Arthur” series and is about how Arthur copes with having his glasses for the first time and the bullying he goes through. “Arthur’s Eyes” is truly a masterpiece for anyone who also has problems with having their glasses for the first time in their lives. Marc Brown’s writing is truly inspiring since it involves a real life situation about how Arthur felt when he was teased by his classmates about his glasses and how he did not want to wear his glasses anymore because of the teasing. The story is cute without going too overboard with the bullying that Arthur faces after he wears his glasses for the first time in his life. Marc Brown’s illustrations are improved more from his last book “Arthur’s Nose” as the characters looked extremely lively and the colors in this book may look a bit dull, but the characters are much more interesting looking in this book. Arthur still retains his long nose, but no longer looks like a real aardvark, which is an improvement to his character. “Arthur’s Eyes” is one of Marc Brown’s most memorable book as it help started the famous TV series and it actually reaches out to kids who have problems with teasing from their classmates when they first got their glasses. I would recommend this book to children ages four and up since there is nothing inappropriate for children in this book.Review is also on: Rabbit Ears Book Blog

    Arthur has trouble seeing and gets a pair of glasses but at first everyone at school laughs at him...My 4 year old grandson asked me to read him this book. It has cute drawings of animals in a grade 2 school setting. Coming from a family where lots of people wear glasses, this story provided a good opportunity to talk about who needs glasses and how it helps them to see things better.

    This is a good story about getting eyeglasses and the benefits (getting to see better) and challenges (getting picked on). Our girls haven't experienced this yet, but if nothing else, I hope they can see that it hurts children to be picked on for being different. They noticed that the illustrations were a bit different (even from the image on the cover) and I explained that it was one of Marc Brown's early books about Arthur, and that the illustrations changed a bit over the years, especially with the TV show. It reminded me of how much Jim Davis's Garfield has changed in the last 30+ years. We borrowed this book as part of a kit from our local library. It included a CD narrated by the author with a paperback book with ISBN13 9780316110693.

    When Arthur needs glasses so that he can be a better student and playmate, the next day, his friend's laugh at him. They tease him because he is different, and Arthur doesn't want to be different. He just wants to be able to see, but he cannot stand to be teased for it. This book helps kids accept the fact that glasses tend to be labeled unjustly as "uncool" and help them accept that it is okay to be different.

    This story is so fun and a great book for kids. It's about Arthur getting glasses. He starts not being able to see well and having to have his friend help him read problems. His parents realize he needs glasses. His friends though start to make fun of him so all he wants to do is hide them away. In the end his teacher helps him realize glasses aren't bad, even he has to wear glasses. This would be good to read to students especially someone struggling with having glasses.

    I love Arthur! But this is a great book to have in the classroom because students who get glasses for the first time, for whatever reason, are ashamed to wear them. It is great for students to see themselves and the problems that they face in the books that they read. Students would be able to see the good that comes from using their glasses!

    Alissa has this story on video. She's watched it many times. When she opened the book, she "read the pictures" almost verbatim. She was so proud.

    Arthur couldn’t see very well. He had to hold his books very close to him, and kids didn’t want to play with him. His parents took him to the eye doctor and got him glasses. His friends laughed at him and called him four eyes. Arthur decided to hide his glasses because he was embarrassed. Arthur accidentally went into the girl's bathroom on accident, and was even further embarrassed. Arthur’s teacher told him that he wore glasses, and this made Arthur feel better. Arthur’s glasses helped him excel in school. This made Francine want to get glasses too. In the classroom I would use this story to discuss bullying. It can help show students that glasses don’t make a student weird or different, but instead help a person excel in things that they were being held back in. I enjoyed this story and feel that it has a great message. I also enjoyed the illustrations, as I usually do in the Arthur books.

    Arthur starts struggling with his eyesight in class and realized that he could not see the classroom board or read his books. His parents decided to take Arthur to the optometrist, that’s when it became official, Arthur needed glasses. He tried on multiple frames but really did not like any that he tried on, in fact he was embarrassed about his glasses. People teased him at school calling him four eyes and sissy. The next day Arthur saw one of his teachers wearing glasses and realized it was not something to be embarrassed about. Wearing the glasses with pride he was able to read the board, improve on his class work and read his books. Overtime, both Arthur and his classmates gained a liking for his glasses and found enjoyment while wearing them. Keeping that in mind, this book could be used in the classroom to show that everyone is different. No one is perfect and we are all going to have something about ourselves that we do not like or might be embarrassed about. We need to teach our students how to be supportive and accepting to all kinds of people. If a student still does not understand that concept, we could teach them what is it like to “ be in their shoes” so that they experience the same feelings as another student. This way equality and acceptance is being taught in the classroom.

    Arthur’s Eyes is a great book that encourages children to be themselves and to not worry about what other people might think of them. It also encourages children that it is a good thing to stand out and be different because it makes you unique and special in your own way. The story revolves around Arthur who finds out he needs glasses but does not want to wear them because nobody else has glasses. However, he worries for no reason at all because he finds that his friends don’t care if he wears glasses—they even help him pick out the perfect pair! Every child would be able to relate to this storyline because everyone has something they are self conscious about or wish that they could change about themselves. However, this book proves that those things are insignificant and should not hold you back. It is a very empowering book, especially for young readers!

    Arthur’s Eyes by Marc Brown is about Arthur’s first pair of glasses. Arthur’s mom takes him to the optometrist where he picks out his first pair of glasses. Arthur confidently went to school in his new glasses, until suddenly people began to make fun of him and Francine called him four eyes. Arthur decided he was going to lose his glasses because getting teased was a lot worse than not being able to see. However, his plan goes terribly wrong when he accidently walks into the girls bathroom because he couldn’t read the door. After learning his teacher wears glasses, he decides they aren’t that bad, and even scores ten baskets in basketball that afternoon. The best part of the book, however, is when Francine comes to school for their class picture in glasses without lenses, just because she likes the way they look.

    Arthur is back again in Arthurs Eyes. This book is about Arthurs struggles when he has to get glasses. None of his classmates or friends have glasses and when he wears them for the first time they all tease him. Sick of their teasing Arthur refuses to wear them and gets himself in some sticky situations. Eventually he realizes that its okay to be a little different and that he really needs them in order to do daily activities, no matter how goofy they look. I enjoyed this book and I believe it has great lessons for young readers and that in general it is a great book for them. It teaches them that it is okay to be different and that friends should accept you for who you are. Once again the author Marc Brown has provided exciting and detailed illustrations that readers will enjoy.

    This is one of Marc Browns first Arthur books. Arthur was a normal boy who sometime had a hard time seeing. Not being able to see made it hard for Arthur to lots of normal activities. So he got glasses but he did not like them at all he did all he could to get rid of them. When finally, he was talking to his teacher who convinced him that glasses weren’t as bad as the thought and his friend helped make him feel less alone and wore classes with him. This is a good book for lots of children who are new to the though of glasses they think that people will make fun of them when really they need them and they aren’t that bad. I am not as big of a fan of his earlier art work I feel that the pictures are a little odd looking but it is still a great story.

    Arthur’s Eyes, written by Marc Brown is a book that is a part of the Arthur series. In this story, Arthur is in third grade and has to get his first pair of glasses. Arthur did not mind them at first, until all the kids at school started calling him “four eyes”. This really affected Arthur at first, until he realized it does not matter what others think. This book is great to teach children that it is okay if you need to wear glasses. Glasses are a common change in a child’s life, and some of my student’s may feel the same way Arthur does. It can also be used as a lesson to learn the importance to not tease your friends or classmates. Kids will enjoy this book since the Arthur series is also a popular TV show on television.

    The original Arthur, when he actually had a long nose. A Reading Rainbow favorite--how can you not love Bill Cosby reading this?5/13/10 a supplemental book in my "For Mom" preschool storytime, as my Tue. choices were not that great. The cover is updated to the more modern Arthur, but the pictures within are still the original. I was very happy with that. And I could not help putting is some of the Bill Cosby voices and inflections while reading this. I think the group liked it--it wasn't an easy group to tell with. But it was a great length and one they could follow the story on. I do wonder, though, how books set in schools work with them, as that's one thing they haven't really experienced, yet.

    Review; This is a book from a series called An Arthur Adventure. I think it one of the best books in the series. It is funny and teaches various lessons such as teasing is not nice and you should not let others get you. Marc Brown Facts: I'd like to begin by saying, I love this author. His books are wonderful.Marc Brown is an American children's books author and illustrator. Many of his books are related to his own life as a child and as an adult.

    In Arthur's eyes, his vision is blurred but does not want to get glasses. He is embarrassed of having to get glass but then in the end he does and he feels so much better. His friends help find the perfect and that helps him warm up to the idea of having to wear them. Having his friends support him made Arthur feel more confident in having to get glasses. It allowed for him to learn how to accept help from others and to accept any changes that might come his way. In the classroom can be used to teach children about supporting one another and how being supportive can change a person's attitude towards something that at first they were not big fans of.

    This version was one of the older (original) books so the drawings don't look like the tv show so if your child is used to watching Arthur on PBS then they maybe a little 'off' with the pictures in this book. But the story is a good one. Especially for children having to wear glasses and the frustrations of their friends at school making fun of them. Arthur soon learns that it's okay to wear glasses and is sometimes pretty "cool" to wear them too! How he can do so many more things much better than he once did!

    This book is about Arthur's vision is got so bad that he needed glasses and he has to deal with this classmates at school. This book can be used for a variety of thing. I see it as a book to not to pick on people that are different. I also see it as a book to use for something to step up when they see a problem. These books always have a great ending so it would be great for a morning activity. There is multiple copies of this book with different illustration. The text is the same but old illustration Arthur is really creepy.

    This book confuses me. On the cover it has the PBS modern Arthur and in the book it has the original 1979 Arthur which DO NOT resembles each other (except for the glasses. I guess) but setting that aside, the story is good. It is all about needing glasses which so many people do. It is a good story to talk to children about glasses, why people need them and trying to not make fun of them but include them. So over all good book...It would be a 2 for me but, it is Arthur.... and I like the TV SHOW!

    Most people have a version of this book with a modern version of Arthur's face. I actually like the original cover better because it shows how Arthur's face has evolved over the years. The first Arthur book was Arthur's Nose and he had a very aardvark-like long nose. The original Arthur's Eyes was the second Arthur book and his nose was getting a little shorter but was still aardvark-like.

    Just saw my brother reading this in an old home video. Though the moral of the story is that glasses can be cool too, I was terrified to get them, hence the fact that none of my childhood pictures show me with four eyes.Looking back on it, I don't really understand why Arthur is an aardvark. He doesn't really look like one to me.

    During elementary school I was on a mission to read every Arthur book I could get my hands on.I rated every book that I read during childhood 5 stars.Why? Well because that was a time in my life when I loved every single thing I read. And because they bring back fond memories. Ah, the joys of being young!

    Second Arthur book. Arthur needs glasses, and is teased because of them. Eventually he learns that they are very helpful, and don't look so bad after all. Better art than the previous book, and generally improved.
