This children’s book explores what all parents want for their children: for them to know and feel that they are special in their uniqueness. Florczyk’s inspiration for her book comes from her daughter Anna who, like her mother, began wearing eyeglasses at a young age. “Super Sassy Spectacles”encourages everyone, young and old, to always look for new adventures and forever “be brave and be sassy.”

Student editor for “Super Sassy Spectacles,” Erynn Williams, states: “’Super Sassy Spectacles’ empowers children to love and celebrate their differences. It is a vivid, colorful, and adventurous story that will definitely bring smiles and laughter to the entire family.”
