We’re all a little different and we’ve all got something that makes us special or makes us stand out.
That’s the message of the new book Jacob’s Eye Patch, a story about a young boy who wears an eye patch to help his weaker left eye get stronger. Jacob knows that people want to ask him about his patch and normally he’s fine with talking to people about it, but in the story he’s in a big rush to get to the store and buy a new toy and he just wishes people would stop asking questions!
The book is fast-paced and fun to read (Jacob’s excuses to get out of talking about his patch are adorable) and it’s illustrated by Jules Feiffer, a well known illustrator for many works who will always have a special place in my heart for his work on The Phantom Tollbooth.
The website for Jacob’s Eye Patch is also worth a visit. There you can find an Activity Kit with ideas on how to engage children and discuss the themes in the book. You can also share your something on their What’s Your Something? page. What makes you or your child a little different? What makes you special?
