Beatrice likes the dark. She likes black clothes, graveyard picnics, and a sky full of stars. Her sister, Roo, likes the light. She likes bright clothes, picking strawberries, and hot, sunny days. Beatrice and Roo are nothing alike and don’t understand each other. Can Beatrice help Roo love the dark as much as she does? Can Roo help Beatrice love the light? Or are they simply too different to get along?

With lushly detailed artwork, award-winning illustrator Khoa Le brings to vivid life acclaimed author April Tucholke’s heartwarming, slightly spooky tale about two very different sisters who learn to celebrate their individuality, understanding that love runs deeper than their differences.

My Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Beatrice likes the dark, her sister Roo enjoys the light. Can they come together and share with each other their differences? A wonderful story about acceptance, differences and sisterly love. The illustrations paired brilliantly, so much detail. They are absolutely gorgeous. I think that this book should be in the hands of all children so they can learn that differences make us unique and we need to accept people for who they are!
