Rhonda Fischer is a name you will want to remember. She is the author of the Randy Kazandy series. Randy is an adorable little boy who needs glasses. Although Randy sees two of everything without his glasses he still does not want to wear them. In fact, he does everything he can get rid of them, but his mother always has a spare pair ready. Just when Randy thinks he has destroyed every pair, his doctor delivers more. Randy’s father tells him that he also needs to wear glasses, which changes Randy's perception of them and he decides that wearing glasses isn’t so bad after all.
There are three major elements in this book: the message, the format, and the illustrations. The message in this one we all need to learn--it is okay to be different. From Personal experience, I know children do not like to be different. Whether it is glasses, height, weight, etc., we all want to fit in. Both children and adults will cherish the message. The format of this book is a delightful prose. The words dance across the page as if in a magical musical parade. Children love lyrical prose. They will ask to read this book over and over. I saved the best for last…the illustrations. Artist Kim Sponaugle is a master of her art. The colors are bright and cheerful, the drawings are exquisite and quickly draw children into the story. I put this tale to the ultimate test…grandchildren. Four year old Maddix loved this book, he understood the plot and asked me to read it to him again. Of course I agreed. Fischer and Sponaugle made quite a team and an excellent book! If you are having trouble reading this review, maybe its time you visited the fun Dr. Bee!
