Description

Doubles are good for lots of things—double scoops of ice cream, double features at the movies. But double vision is NOT a good kind of double. In fact, it can make kindergarten kind of hard. Ginny sees double chairs at reading circle and double words in her books. She knows that only half of what she sees is real, but which half? The solution to her problem is wondrously simple: an eye patch! Ginny becomes the pirate of kindergarten.With the help of her pirate patch, Ginny can read, run, and even snip her scissors with double the speed! Vibrant illustrations from Lynne Avril capture the realities of what Ginny sees both before and after.

    Ginny loves reading, but has a hard time not sticking her nose in books or squinting because, unbeknownst to her or her family, she sees double. However, she thinks that everyone sees like this and works hard to tighten “her mind the way you tie a knot in a rope” in order to make it through the everyday kindergarten tasks of reading, cutting, and walking to Reading Circle without knocking chairs over. On Vision Screening Day, the nurse working with her class discovers that she sees double. On a visit to the eye doctor with her mom, the doctor gives her an eye patch to correct her double vision. Ginny becomes the Kindergarten Pirate and she is now able to complete the tasks she previously struggled with.

    Students will enjoy the meaningful story in this Schneider Family Book award-winning book. Chalk pastel and prismacolor pencils create bold, vivid illustrations that allow readers to see the world through Ginny’s eyes, which is important for readers who may not relate with the struggles she has with her vision. Students in school will most likely be familiar with vision screenings, and students with vision disorders may be able to relate with the story of Ginny. The story describes the process leading up to her receiving the patch, and does not give much information about life after that receiving and wearing the patch. Because of this, I think this could be a helpful book as part of a wider variety of books with characters with disorders or corrective equipment, though I think this book is important as it discusses a topic that seems to lack quality literature for young children.

    This book is about a kindergartener named Ginny who sees things differently than most people. She loves many school activities such as reading circle but other activities are difficult for her such as cutting using scissors. When Ginny walks, she bumps into people and things, when she reads, she closes one eye, and when she cuts, she doesn’t always cut on the line. Ginny doesn’t know that she doesn’t see like most people. At a school vision screening, Ginny finds out that she has double vision. With the help and encouragement from the nurse, doctor and mom, she gets glasses and begins to wear an eye patch to help her exercise her eyes. She enjoys wearing the eye patch because it helps her with completing school activities, but, she also likes it because she is now a kindergarten pirate!

    This book has many great qualities such as the kid-friendly language, vibrant illustrations, which show the doubles that Ginny sees, and the portrayal of helpful adults. I especially like that the nurse in the book is male, which isn’t the case most of the time.

    The story talks about the theme of being different and accepting oneself. Ginny does a great job dealing with the truth. She cries for a while but soon settles own and accepts the help of the adults. This book can be used to help students feel comfortable about the way they are. Ginny is optimistic about her eye patch and sees it as a tool to help her be successful in school. This book can help students feel confident and optimistic about the way they are, too.
