“Beverly Copen is a true visionary. Whatever she touches becomes professional, important and deserving to be highly recognized. This book is yet another example. I have watched Beverly create a model and talent agency; create a plan for building the film business in Georgia, and a book for caregivers to help people through difficult times. And now, with camera in hand, has created an educational photography book to help young people become more aware of cultures and places around the world. We are so lucky she keeps bringing us the experience of such wondrous foresight.” — Carole Hyatt, founder and CEO, The Leadership Forum, best-selling author
Your Eyes Are Your Windows To the World by Beverly Kievman Copen
“This remarkable little book is a visually stunning, thought-provoking educational tool for preteens and teens who are living in a world of intersecting cultures, global markets, social media and world-wide communications that open the places and people of the world to unprecedented connections. The book’s photographs and text reveal not only the beauty and diversity of our planet and its people, but also the common threads of humanity and aspiration that bind us all together. If I were a middle-school teacher of social studies or geography or world affairs, I’d want to share the lessons of this gently-inspiring book with my students.”
— Jack Watson, former White House chief of staff under President Jimmy Carter; chair of the National Portrait Gallery Commission

“Your Eyes Are Your Windows to the World is a rich tapestry of cultural understanding through photography, a global portrait aimed at the world’s youth. The better we understand one another, the smaller the distance between our cultures, the more peaceful the planet is. Beverly Copen’s warm, inviting book serves as a vehicle for greater understanding, and as such should be a staple in classrooms everywhere.” — Charles N. Davis, dean, Henry W. Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication, University of Georgia, Athens, Georgia

Through beautiful photographs from around the globe and with thought provoking questions, Ms. Copen asks all of us to open our eyes and mind to explore other cultures, uncover our dreams and believe in ourselves by understanding our choices. As an educational leader in this era of internationalization, I endorse this book heartily for all educators seeking to globalize their curriculum and help their students become global citizens.” — Dr. Rosemary Papa, Del and Jewell Lewis Endowed Chair and professor, Educational Leadership, Northern Arizona University
