All Children Have Different Eyes is a beautifully illustrated storybook that models for children with visual impairment how to confidently and competently play and make friends while facing difficult social challenges, such as how to answer questions about their condition, enter play groups, and handle their limitations responsibly. Over 40 examples and activities transform the engaging stories into an interactive workbook for use by parents and teachers. Classmates will also learn to become better friends and playmates when they discover why children with visual impairment see and play in different ways. A glossary for kids and resources for adults complete this valuable resource in every child's social development.

Vidi Press is proud to publish this one-of-a-kind and long-overdue picture book to support the social development needs of children with visual impairment. It not only meets traditional publishing standards, but exceeds them in illustration, story, and production quality. We hope to continue publishing books that inspire, inform, and support children who happen to live with a variety of challenging, but not disabling, conditions. That is the essence of vidi.From the Author:
From Edie Glaser: All Children Have Different Eyes is the book I wish my classmates, parents, and teachers had when I was in elementary school. It provides the awareness that peers needed to understand why I played differently. It also provides realistic examples of how I could have answered the many questions about why I looked at things differently. This book finally breaks the silence that thousands of kids with visual impairment and physical limitations live with every day.
From Dr. Burgio: By reading All Children Have Different Eyes with their children, parents and teachers will be able to start important conversations about their daily challenges in the classroom and on the playground. This can lead to life-changing opportunities for positive social development. To help in this effort, the back of the book includes explanations of the social competencies modeled by each of the characters as well as specific activities for parents and teachers to use with their child as they nurture healthy play and social interactions.
