Poor little Fanny Far-Sighted. She was the typical third-grader, more excited about recess and art than math and social studies. But unlike many of her peers, little Fanny was far-sighted and had to wear glasses at school or when walking her little dog, Farfel.
One day little Fanny began to have trouble breathing. Mom took her to the doctor, Dr. Funface, who said that Fanny had to have a minor facial surgery in order to correct her breathing problems. Little Fanny began to cry.
“Oh, Mommy dearest, “she wailed, “How will I wear my glasses to let me see where I am going?” “How will I walk Farfel? How will I be able to make my beautiful art projects?”
Mommy held Fanny close to her and reassured her that everything would work out and she could wear her glasses when Dr. Funface said that it was okay. Then Mommy promised that she would continue to check with the doctor’s office to get the approval for Fanny to begin wearing glasses.
But Fanny Far-Sighted worried and worried that she would not be able to do her favorite activities after the surgery. She tossed and turned and turned and tossed in her bed, trying to believe that everything would work out fine.
One night when Fanny was sound asleep, she was awakened by a noise in her room. There in front of her was the Optical Good Fairy, with a package in her hand.
“Oh, my goodness!” said Fanny. “Who are you and why are you here?”
“Fear not, sweet Fanny. I am the Optical Good Fairy who has come to show you RhinoShields. As soon as you want to wear your glasses, the RhinoShields will protect your delicate nose and prevent damage to it. All of your problems are solved.”
Fanny was amazed and delighted at the solution. When she awoke the next morning, she marched her little feet to Mommy and Daddy’s room. She told them about the visitor she had seen in her room the night before and showed them the RhinoShields.
Mommy and Daddy were both surprised and delighted. They were now calm and reassured about scheduling Fanny’s surgery and they all lived happily ever after.
