Which pair will you wear?
In a world where every person faces a daily choice between two pairs of glasses, young Scarlett grumbles through day after day, seeing only the dreary aspects of the circumstances around her through her “grumbly glasses.” Her loving mother, tired of Scarlett making a spectacle of herself with her grumbly attitude, encourages Scarlett to give her “glad glasses” a try, even though the change may be difficult at first. Scarlett soon realizes that making the choice to see with gratitude not only makes God happy, it fills her own heart with joy as well.
This colorful and spunky board book is a great resource for tackling grumbly attitudes and encouraging more grateful hearts among children. And like Scarlett, they may just chuck those grumbly glasses away for good!
This B&H Kids book includes a Parent Connection, an easy tool to help moms and dads (or anyone else who loves kids) discuss the book's message with their child. We’re all about connecting parents and kids to each other and to God’s Word.
