Heather Poinsett Dunbar (heather_poinsett_dunbar) | 6 comments My mom gave me this book growing up. It probably was passed on to a relative.

It involves a Japanese woman who goes blind and her child as well as some helpful mice.

I remember loving the drawings within, but it wasn't a picture book. Wish I could remember more!

Thanks for any assistance.

Journey to the Bright Kingdom by Elizabeth Winthrop seems to match your description. "The mice of Kakure-sato grant a blind woman temporary sight during the journey she and her kind daughter make to their magical underground kingdom."

I used the advanced search on www.worldcat.org -- Subject: japan blindness | Keyword: mice | Juvenile | Fiction | Book | English
