Eyes That Kiss in the Corners (Wonderbook Edition)

Written by Joanna Ho and Natalie Naudus Bradner (Translator)
Illustrated by Dung Ho
Published by HarperCollins Publishers

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.
