Eyes That Weave the World's Wonders

A young girl who is a transracial adoptee learns to love her Asian eyes and finds familial connection and meaning through them, even though they look different from her parents'. Her family bond is deep and their connection is filled with love, but she also wonders about her birth mom. Over time, though, she comes to appreciate both her birth culture and her adopted family's culture, for even though they may seem very different, they are both a part of her, and that is what makes her beautiful.

From New York Times bestselling Joanna Ho, of Eyes that Kiss in the Corners, and award-winning educator Liz Kleinrock, comes a powerful companion picture book about adoption and family. Lyrical and heartfelt, with a story that touches on the nuances and complexity of adoption and family, this is a powerful picture book about difference, sameness, and connection.

Description

"The unnamed young narrator reflects on the annual family portrait. Everyone is in 'matching clothes and matching shoes and matching laughter.' Yet there’s one distinct feature that doesn’t match: 'No one in my family has eyes like mine'.... The lyrical narrative follows the child through explorations of fragmented memories from before the protagonist was adopted. The authors briefly touch on the complex feelings and questions of 'who,' 'what if,' and 'why'.... A striking adoption tale that opens space for larger questions and feelings." — Kirkus Reviews
