Primary Education
This book focuses on Sulwe, a little girl who doesn't like the color of her skin because her older sister Mich has lighter skin and gets pretty compliments, so Sulwe goes on this journey with a start to discover that she is neede to balance her sister skin with her own which make them both unique.
This book is great for addressing the uniqueness of ones individual skin and that no matter the color you are unique in more than one way and that no two snowflakes are a like.

This book was everything I hoped it would be. Beautiful illustrations and an even more beautiful message. Every child should have this book read to them.

From Kirkus: "A thoughtfully layered text and powerful illustrations address this sensitive topic in a uniquely nurturing way."

Ayoung Black girl who is told she is too big learns which labels to keep.

When she was a baby, being a “big girl” was good. But at a certain point, getting bigger becomes tinged with negativity. Adults are frustrated with the girl because of her size. Other children tease her. On the playground and in ballet, where she used to feel joyous and free, the girl is humiliated. On wordless spreads, all alone, the girl fills the tightly constricted pages, as if trapped by their borders. She lets her feelings out in tears that form a puddle of words—the criticisms of others as well as more positive ones: imaginative, creative, compassionate. Finally, she is able to see clearly, and she decides “to make more space for herself” by pushing the boundaries of the page in a powerful fold-out spread. After that, she knows how to separate the words that do and don’t belong to her and what to do with them. Textured illustrations in a soft, predominantly pink palette endear the protagonist to readers, while spare, carefully crafted text delivers an important message of self-acceptance and combating anti-fat bias that never feels preachy or overdone. Bestselling creator Harrison has produced another classic that belongs on every child’s shelf—this is one that will nurture little ones and help them to see the beauty in themselves.

A healing balm with the power to make the world a bit kinder. (author’s note) (Picture book. 4-9)
