"Grady Gets Glasses"

Were you like me, were you the first kid in your classroom at school to have to get eyeglasses?  (It happened to me when I was in third grade.) Or maybe one of your kids had to get glasses at an early age.  If so, then this new children's book, "Grady Gets Glasses" might be right your and your children's alley.

One of our neighbors, Dede Rittman, is a retired teacher from the North Allegheny School District, and she has just had her first children's book published, a nifty little story about Grady, a bunny who has to wear glasses.  The book is beautifully illustrated by one of Dede's former students from NA, Lauren Givens Wood.

Why a bunny?  Well, I will let Dede explain all of that to you on her website, www.gradygetsglasses.com.  The book will be available in stores and at Amazon after the first of the year, I believe, but you can order copies now directly from Dede via the website.  

Ms. Rittman has promised that there will be more Grady stories coming in the future, including one where Grady plays golf. I can't wait to read that one!
