Eyes that Kiss in the Corners

Written by Joanna Ho, Illustrated by Dung Ho

This is a joyful story of celebration about learning to love yourself, just as you are. The beautiful illustrations are magical and add to the feeling of poetry that the words bring. The book adds to a diverse library collection. This book focuses on Asian eyes and how our eyes can be different and also the same as our sisters, our mamas, our amah. The book contains Chinese elements such as Gyanyin, the Monkey King, dragons, lotus, and lychee trees. It is delightful for reading aloud.
