Eyes that Kiss in the Corners by Joanna Ho is a beautiful lyrical story that teaches the importance of diversity and loving who you are. This book tells the story of embracing our differences through the eyes of a young girl.

The young unnamed narrator notices her eyes are shaped differently from her peers. Although her eyes are not big and round with long lashes, her eyes do “kiss in the corners and glow like warm tea.” The author’s poetic work reveals how other women in the girl’s family have eyes just like hers, expanding on how each set of eyes looks and what they convey. The warm textured illustrations also make this book even more enjoyable to read, especially the beautiful artwork derived from Chinese culture.

This picture book can teach everyone to love themselves and have confidence no matter how they look, and it teaches us to love others no matter how they look too. Whether you are young, or young at heart, this book has an essential message for all!
