I Looked Into Your Eyes: A Poem for New Families
What happened the first time your family looked into your eyes, little one? What did they feel? What did they see?
I Looked Into Your Eyes: A Poem for New Families is a lyrical celebration of the moment a family is created or expanded--through birth, fostering, or adoption. It celebrates modern familial diversity, while being strongly rooted in Jewish tradition. What does a modern family look like? In this book, you'll find many examples, including traditional two-parent families, same-sex families, single families, families featuring grandparents, and more. This sweet poem is the perfect gift for any new parent, Jewish or otherwise.

Aviva Brown is a Jewish mama of four wild animals, who sometimes resemble children. She lives in North Carolina with them, her husband, and two lazy house cats. After being a stay-at-home-parent for 11 years, Aviva thought publishing an illustrated children's book would be a great idea. Surprise! It was a great idea!
The idea came when she noticed a lack of dark-skinned, Jewish children in the books her kids read each night. She now writes books about Jews of Color, different types of Jewish families, and every day Jewish life.
