Specs for Rex
Yasmeen Ismail

Ages: 3-7

Rex is a little lion with a pair of specs he does NOT want to wear.

Rex has new glasses and he HATES them! He does NOT want to wear them to school, and he tries to hide them in the strangest places. But it's pretty tricky hiding specs that are so big, and round and RED . . .
Before Rex's day at school comes to an end he realises that actually there are some advantages to being bespectacled and just maybe he could learn to love them.
