Magical Monday- Book review

March 28, 2011

This photo reminded me of a book I recently took out of the library. It called My Mother’s Sari and it does not have much text but the pictures say enough.ISBN 81-8146-124-7

 

“A simple text celebrates a childs connection with her mothers sari, a stretch of cloth that is long like a train and that fills the air with color when I dance and sing. A blue sari is a river; a patterned one is a place to hide with her friends. Best of all, the youngster wraps herself in the vivid cloth because she loves how it makes her dream. The endpapers demonstrate how to wrap the garment. Full-spread illustrations capture the colors and textures of the fabrics and the little girls wide-eyed playfulness and love of her mothers attire”
