This story is beautifully told and illustrated, and a pleasing first book from Lupita Nyong'o. This is a must read to any child that has doubted themselves or their worth because of how they looked, especially those with darker complexions.
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.
