Superluminous | Book Review

Superluminous has glowed up our hearts with this beautiful story. Embrace your uniqueness and let it shine through is the perfect message for your little ones. A must read! – Momma Braga


Nour loves the luminous glow she was born with, but it’s only when it starts to dim that she discovers the true power of her brilliant light.

Nour has a superpower: she glows. Her light shines so bright, she feels like a star in the night sky. But when kids at school notice her glow, they’re not impressed. If she had a real superpower, they say, she could fly or turn invisible. So Nour stops feeling special. And as her light dims, her world darkens . . . until a nighttime cry from her baby sister shows her how powerful her glow can be.


Superluminous is SUPERB! This children’s story will shine brightly in your reading line up with it’s luminous illustrations and heart touching story.

We love the empowering message it brings to little ones as we should all embrace our uniqueness and let it shine through. Of course, many may not see the beauty in our gifts. However, we shouldn’t let it bring us down. I always tell Nikki, that some just take a little longer to appreciate our uniqueness. 😉

For this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give this book 5 starts out of 5! This book has shined brightly in our home and Nikki loves reading to me at bedtime. Our roles have reversed since she has started to read on her own. We just adore this book so much!
