Beautiful Eyes is based on the timeless motor skills and memory game taught to Filipino babies. An adult says to the baby, “Beautiful Eyes!” Based on memory, a baby will open and close her eyes, batting them for all to see! Beautiful Eyes also emphasizes the beauty that is the Filipino self. It aims to nurture this sense of self early in the baby years for little ones to take into adulthood—and for adults to remember this sense of self as they read to their children. Cool fact: this book has been successfully used in the San Francisco Unified School District and has been approved as SFUSD curriculum.
