Review

Young Sulwe has darker skin than everyone in her family and is teased at school while her sister is celebrated. Sulwe attempts in various ways to lighten her skin until her mother shares with her that true beauty begins within. That night, a shooting star takes Sulwe on a journey to discover the beauty of the darkness. Stunningly illustrated, Sulwe offers a powerful message to young girls, revealing the value of an attitude that celebrates beauty in all its colors. The book would also be an excellent selection for a classroom or library story time discussion on diversity. Highly Recommended Jacy Stahlhut, Centennial Library Intern, Cedarville University
