This lyrical, stunning picture book tells a story about learning to love and celebrate your Asian-shaped eyes, in the spirit of Hair Love by Matthew A. Cherry, and is a celebration of diversity.

A young Asian girl notices that her eyes look different from her peers'. They have big, round eyes and long lashes. She realizes that her eyes are like her mother's, her grandmother's, and her little sister's. They have eyes that kiss in the corners and glow like warm tea, crinkle into crescent moons, and are filled with stories of the past and hope for the future.

Drawing from the strength of these powerful women in her life, she recognizes her own beauty and discovers a path to self-love and empowerment. This powerful, poetic picture book will resonate with readers of all ages.

"This tale of self-acceptance and respect for one's roots is breathtaking." —Kirkus (starred review)

"A young girl finds beauty in her uniqueness." —School Library Journal (starred review)

"A lyrical celebration of her eyes, their shape, spirit, and legacy." —Booklist (starred review)

"A poignant testament to familial love and legacy." —Publishers Weekly

Plus don't miss the beautiful companion book from the same team: Eyes That Speak to the Stars.
