I was SO glad to find this gorgeous, quiet book about not one, but three princesses of color. Three sisters, who are given a task by their father: do something to make him proud, and become ruler of the kingdom. The youngest, Serenity, looks at what her sisters create and chooses a different path. This is a lovely fairy tale enjoyable on its own merits, but also a wonderful contribution to helping children understand leadership and community-building.
