Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Justin Chien

Children Ages 4-6 • 5 mins. • Unabridged • © 2022

With warmth and sensitivity, Justin Chien presents this tender story about honoring oneself and one’s heritage. A Chinese boy tells his Baba that he is saddened by a friend’s drawing of him with eyes “as lines stretched across his face.” Standing him in front of a mirror, the boy’s Baba explains that his eyes “rise to the skies and speak to the stars.” The boy realizes that his legacy, culture, and deep family ties are represented by his eyes. Chien’s smooth narration and soothing tones showcase the descriptive story and the close relationship between the boy and his family. Gentle and enlightening, this short listen delivers an impactful and enduring message about pride in who one is and where one comes from. M.F.
