My Mother's Sari/Engammavin Saylai (Tamil)

Author : Sandhya Rao
Illustrator : Nina Sabnani

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 saris and children, combining photographs and acrylic in dramatic, original ways, with spare text that weaves and winds. 2007: Outstanding International Book, United States Board for Books for Young People, USA

Visually appealing, vibrant artwork

This picture book captures the different ways a child chooses to play with a sari - to explore, dream and play innocent games. For example, on one page, we see a little girl using her mother's sari as a hammock, and on another - a safe blanket for a nap; one using as a slide; another as a rope to climb; a little boy playing train around his mother's sari etc. etc.Saffrontree.org
