Born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria, the authors who are sisters were inspired to write this book when younger sister, Elizabeth, began curating books for the daughter of older sister, Adetoro. Elizabeth found that stories about Black children were simply less available.

Rather than stay frustrated, Elizabeth enlisted her sister, and began writing Childrens’ books that center African culture and history. The ultimate goal is to write enough books centered around African culture to curate endless reading lists for children across the world.

“The Children of Light – Book I” is available for purchase on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
