A simple narrative combined with intentionally implicit artistic decisions, Before the Sun Wakes Up is dedicated to promoting acceptance and equality in the minds of young children, to assure all children that they have a place in this world. The gender neutral and racially ambiguous character combined with the soft, papercut illustrations aim to encourage a more loving and accepting world.
