Picture Book Wednesday: Sulwe


Sulwe has darker skin than anyone she knows; she wants to be beautiful.

I loved this book with it's amazing illustrations and sweet message. I love what Sulwe's name means. It was heartbreaking to see how she wanted to lighten her skin to be more like everyone else, but I love how learned about her own beauty. I enjoyed learning that this picture book is based off the actress's own life.
