Hero worship when directed toward a positive goal can be a virtually instructive tool. In this cases the other children re-evaluate their feelings about a common ""handicap"", but more important, the stigma attached to wearing glasses is thoroughly eradicated in the minds of Mike and Sally. Paul Galdone's light touch reveals a couple of winning though hespectacted young. A See and Read book.
