My Mother’s Sari, by Sandhyr Rao  (ages 3-6)

My Mother's Sari CoverA beautiful book for Mother’s Day filled with photographs of colorful saris that pop off the page.  Each illustration contains drawings of young children interacting with the photographed sari patterns in a variety of ways as they describe its aspects.  “My mother’s Sari is like a long train.  It fills the air with color as I dance and sing.  I sail down a river and climb up a rope.”  The patterned backgrounds on which they are all laid out help add to the visual interest.  A unique book that demonstrates that no matter what your culture, mommy’s clothes are always fascinating.
