jacob's eye patch
(Beth Kobliner Shaw & Jacob Shaw/ illus. by Jules F, Simon & Schuster $17 Score:)

Jacob is impatient to get to the store. Today is the big day. He's getting the light up globe he's been longing for, only at every turn there seem to be people delaying Jacob and his mom. Mostly the delays are about the patch he wears on his good eye to make his weak eye stronger. Jacob has no time for this today. With humor and not a whole lot of medical info, this lively book says a lot to kids with similar conditions and to kids who are curious about them. The afterward written by nine-year old Jacob and his mom add another dimension. Illustrated by Jules Feiffer, this is a book for kids on both sides of a patch.
