About The Book

The sari Mother wears every day is sometimes a train, sometimes a river, or a swing, or a hiding place... Children have a way of seeing things differently! The pictures too break away from conventional depictions of both sari and children, combining photographs and acrylic in dramatic, original ways. The spare text weaves and winds between this visual interplay of children, colours and textures, to create the mood-filled world of My Mother's Sari.

The US edition of the book was selected by United States Board on Books for Young People (USBBY) and the Children's Book Council as one of the Outstanding International Books for 2007.
