Glasses to Go

Hannah Eliot, illus. by Daniel Roode. Little Simon, $7.99 (16p) ISBN 978-1-4814-1791-4

In a stylish companion to Kimberly Ainsworth’s Moustache Up!, also illustrated by Roode, readers can match seven pairs of punch-out cardboard eyeglasses to smiling, emoji-esque faces, representing people with different professions (pilot, rock star), moods, or styles. “Glasses to walk the red carpet./ Glasses to experiment in the lab./ Which glasses are for someone totally fab?” asks Eliot, as Roode showcases the head of a woman with a chic updo, teardrop earrings, pursed lips, and a beauty mark (a slot lets readers affix the glasses to her face). Aviators, star-shaped glasses, and other fun options might inspire some real-life dress-up play after reading. Ages 3–5. Illustrator’s agency: Lilla Rogers Studio. (Nov.)
