Sulwe book cover


Written by Lupita Nyong'o | Illustrated by Vashti Harrison | Published by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

Sulwe is a beautiful girl with a name that means "star", but she doesn't feel like a star at all. And she doesn't feel beautiful either. She believes that her skin color is too dark. But her mother, and a fable from a shooting star, offer wisdom and a message of self love.
