A perfectly timed ghost story for children! Gracie is bespectacled rabbit who loses her glasses while playing in the mountains with her friends. She goes in search of them, bumbling around into other animals, helpless without her glasses. A friendly looking ghost attempts to scare her, however, because she cannot see the ghost she isn’t frightened. She promises she will look at the ghost once her glasses are found. The ghost appears kind and searches all night for her glasses. Upon putting the glasses on, it is daylight, and the ghost has now vanished. This is a cute ghost story that is nonthreatening. It is a story that would be great to read with a child who needs to wear glasses, as the book brings up some great talking points around this. The illustrations are playful and sweet. I recommend this book for children ages 3-5, especially those who might need glasses.
