The Adventures of Soul Sistas: Or How The Sisters Changed the World by Newton Vanriel is a coming-of-age picture book for children. After falling madly in love, getting married, and moving from their hometown of Toronto to become country folk in Espanola, Alexandra and Nathan make another life-changing decision. They decided to add a baby to their family, but after struggling to achieve this, they took another approach. One day whilst at the farmers market, Alexandra and Nathan meet a young pregnant woman who they bonded with immediately. Alexandra and Nathan are in luck, as the young woman had made the hard choice of giving her child up for adoption. After a long conversation and official paperwork, Alexandra and Nathan become parents to a little girl who they name Charm. A little way down the road, Alexandra and Nathan are in a similar situation and adopt another baby girl, who they call Dawn. With huge differences, and a town full of judgmental people, how will the girls become "Soul Sistas?"
The Adventures of Soul Sistas by Newton Vanriel was a pleasure to read. The storyline is beautiful and has a lot of important life lessons for children to pick up on. Children will ultimately learn to accept people no matter their differences because families come in all shapes and sizes, and that should be embraced and celebrated, not judged or frowned upon. The illustrations by Monique Ra Brent are creative, colorful, and adorable - children will love them! I enjoyed every page of this incredible book and I know children will too, so don't delay in purchasing a copy. You won't be disappointed!
