Synopsis:

Being different can be hard. This funny, heartwarming story—written by bestselling author of Get a Financial Life Beth Kobliner Shaw with her son Jacob, and illustrated by award-winning picture book artist Jules Feiffer—encourages young readers to embrace the thing that makes them unique...

Jacob is in a hurry—a really big hurry—to get to the store to buy a special toy. There's only one left, and if he doesn’t get to it soon, he’ll never forgive his mom and dad for making him late. Strangers often stop Jacob’s parents on the street to ask about him. See, Jacob is unusual: He has an eye patch. Jacob knows people like to ask questions, but do they have to ask right now?

Luckily, Jacob gets to the store in time, and he meets a new friend who has something different too. In the end, Jacob’s journey makes him more aware of other peoples’ feelings. Jacob’s Eye Patch is the go-to book for talking about differences that kids can enjoy and parents can turn to for guidance.

Synopsis:

Jacob is in a hurry—a really big hurry—to get to the store and buy the toy he’s always wanted. Along the way, people keep slowing him down to ask him questions about his eye patch. It’s natural to have questions when someone looks different . . . but do they have to ask right now?
