Eyes that Kiss in the Corners by Joanna Ho
Eyes that Kiss in the Corners by Joanna Ho - "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 and is a celebration of diversity."--Provided by publisher. Ages 4-8.

She learns everything she can about the planet and space, then assembles her crew of trusty stuffed animals. Together they build a rocket and prepare for the historic journey. And then finally ... blastoff!" --

We Belong Together by Liz Marie and Jose Galvan
We Belong to Each Other by Liz Marie and Jose Galvan - A lamb named Grace searches longingly for a family until she finds others like her at White Cottage Farm.
