The new children’s book “Eyes that Weave the World’s Wonders” follows a young transracial adoptee who realizes that while her Asian eyes may not resemble her parents, they’re a priceless connection to the culture and identity of her biological family. It’s a story about love and finding the beauty in the things that might set us apart from each other.

Host Deepa Fernandes speaks with both of the book’s authors: Joanna Ho is the New York Times bestselling author of several children’s books, and Liz Kleinrock is a transracial adoptee and an anti-racist educator.
