"A thoughtfully layered text and powerful illustrations address this sensitive topic [of colorism] in a uniquely nurturing way." (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)
*"By turns beguiling (as when Sulwe’s mother counsels her tearful daughter) and magical (a shooting star darts into Sulwe’s room to share the story of Night and Day), the volume also clearly conveys that colorism is real, and it hurts. Sulwe’s story confronts it head-on, with words and images that celebrate the 'dark and beautiful, bright and strong.'" (Publishers Weekly, starred review)
"A welcome celebration of Black girls, an important lesson for all kids (and grownups), and a necessary message for any child who has been made to feel unworthy of love on account of their looks." (Booklist)

Minus one star because although the cover is extremely beautiful, it easily tore. The cover rubbed up against something and the bottom of it tore already. I wasn’t tough or anything. The cover is not glued on or anything. It can be removed from the book which I don’t like.
Other than that it’s a great book.
Sisters Day and Night once friends become separated, after Dark hears hurtful words. But when the days become too long, Dark is needed to create balance, and the people realize her beauty and importance. Night and Day find a unique way to share with each other during their respective hours.
Part fantasy, part adventure, this is a beautiful book about self discovery.

I bought the book for my daughter. I was so exited about the book I did not even read it on my own before hand. So I started to read the story to her and I had to stop. I felt that the book could create issue where there are non. My daughter is not very dark but she is the only black child at her nursery and inevitably we shall tackle colour and race. Sulwe’s story is sad but i would feel that it would be geared to older / pre teen to adults.....
Bought as a collectors item for myself. I'm 59.
Should any grandchildren come along in the future this will definitely be shared
Love thevski you're in x
I hope see lot more books bye her .
