So let’s talk Kid’s Book’s, I know with my own children we love to read together, especially with pig and beast. They are both at an age where they are unable to read just yet. The older girls, mouse and pork chop are happy to sit and read to themselves where as titch will read to me or mum.
I was recently contacted and sent a new kid’s book that is due to be released on the 4th July, from The Cheeky Chimps Books.
They sent me their New book ‘The Cheeky Chimps Go To the Opticians’
The Cheeky Chimps Go To The Opticians
The story follows the 2 main characters, young children or monkeys, Felix and Felicity.
Mum notices that something isn’t right with Felix and Felicity sitting so close to the TV. I know what your thinking here… No mum doesn’t say don’t sit to close to the telly because you will get square eyes.
Mum decides that it is time both Felix and Felicity go to the Opticians for an Eye Test.
With the thought of going to the Opticians, it is something new and it can be quite daunting. Especially for children. In the Children’s story Felicity is excited about going to the Opticians but Felix is feeling nervous about the visit.
The Cheeky Chimps Go To The Opticians is a great kid’s Book, my daughters have found it very interesting.
Pig enjoyed the illustrations and looking at the various machines and equipment. She read along with the letters on the wall in one of the pictures and also named the images used during the eye test.
My youngest step daughter Titch has been once before for an Eye Test at our local Opticians. She related with the equipment and machines used and remembered doing the same thing herself.
This children’s story is such a great idea to help alleviate any issues of feeling nervous with children if they are due to visit an optician for an Eye Test.

Eye Tests and our Children.
One thing that got me thinking after reading this story. I also recieved a few DM’s on my Instagram asking for advice about when to get my children’s eyes tested.
With this I wasn’t sure. I think Titch was 5 when she first had her eyes tested.
I think it would vary depending on your child. If you have any concerns with their vision or sight then you should get them checked. Children usually have their eyes checked and tested at their 1 year check up.
From then they should have their eyes examined at around 3 years of age and just before they start school — at about age 4 or 5.
