The Most Beautiful Thing


Drawn from author Kao Kalia Yang's childhood experiences as a Hmong refugee, this heartfelt nonfiction picture book portrays a family with a great deal of love and little money. Weaving together Kalia's story with that of her beloved grandmother, the book moves from the jungles of Laos to the family's early years in the United States. When Kalia wishes for braces to straighten her crooked teeth, it is her grandmother who helps her find what is truly beautiful.
