Edward's eyes

Edward's Eyes

 Edward's eyes are a beautiful blue. His brother Jake watches him grow up and use his eyes to see and learn many things... including one summer when Edward uses them to learn how to throw a knuckleball, to prepare for a new addition to the family and to ride off on his bike one day... 

If you like realistic fiction, if you want a book that will touch your heart - and perhaps bring tears to your own eyes, read Edward's eyes, by Patricia MacLachlan.
