Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Luis can't seem to find his reading glasses, when Snuffy enters the Fix-It Shop. Luis is supposed to be his designated reader today, but he can't without his glasses. Fortunately, Snuffy's book has large enough print for Luis to read.
SCENE 2 Rosita now wants Luis to read to her, but he tells her there's no way he can. Rosita thinks she can teach him to read with a song ("The AT Family Song"). She leaves the book with him to practice some more.
SCENE 3 Luis resorts to calling Dr. Fleegleman's Eyeglass World for a new pair, but can't make out the number in his contact book. He finds Big Bird and asks him to read it, though Big Bird isn't sure what an F looks like. Luis points him toward some films:
