Siliwe, by Lupita Nyong’o (yes, the famous actress form Black Panther), tells a tale familiar to so many girls everywhere, who think they are different, not pretty; that they will never be admired in the world, and will always be plain. Beautiful illustrations and lilting text show how wrong they can be,
‘Sulwe rose the next morning beaming. There would be no hiding any more. She belonged out in the worlkd and beautifuyl, bright and strong.’
A lovely book for little girls needing a bit of extra confidence – and stunning artwork to feast their eyes on.
