Book Overview

A New York Times Bestseller and #1 Indie Bestseller

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 poignant testament to familial love and legacy. -- Publishers Weekly

I assumed the book would be a memoir when I first read it. I am happy I gave it a read. The book is beautiful and the artwork is great. Beautiful colors and cultural references. The illustrations are stunning.
   Beautiful Picture book
I have been looking for stories that talk about individual differences and this was perfect. I was able to find a picture book that represented my students after following the author on social media.
   Touched me in a sentimental way
It's beautiful. I wish I had that when I was a child. The little girl in me felt like she was being watched. My sister and I both cried when she read it out loud for the first time. We have a rich cultural background. I appreciated the sentiment and book, but didn't feel triggered. Thank you for that! It's!
   Uniquely beautiful!
I read it with my daughter who was adopted from China. There are not many Asian students at her school, so she is surrounded by girls with big eyes and long lashes. She was inspired by the book to talk about how important it is for her to be recognized and celebrated for who she is. The text and illustrations complement the message of embracing your own unique beauty.
   Need more books like this!
The illustrations are beautiful. The book is very well written and reads like a poem. There are few Asian-American kids books that talk about this topic. A wonderful addition to our collection.
   Great book, beautiful illustrations
I got this book when I first saw it. There are not many books with Asian representation. I want my kids to know that their eyes are the same as others. The illustrations are beautiful. My kids liked the book. We can always use more books for our children.
   Transracial/adoptive family caution
For most families, this is a beautiful book. If you are an adoptive or transracial family, it is likely not a good fit. Her eyes are celebrated in the book as much as her mom and grandma are. If your sweet girls eyes don't look like their mom or grandma's, it could cause some hard feelings and conversations. I was looking forward to this book so much that I am really disappointed. Beauty is not from the sameness. Her eyes don't look like mine, but they are beautiful.
   Such a beautifully written and illustrated story
I read this story to my kids. There are gorgeous illustrations in the story. The eyes that kiss in the corners show how beautiful Asian eyes are.
