I came to know about this book from another blog. I am so glad I found this book in our local library. It is a very nice book about all the different things kids like to do with their mothers saree. Using it as a hammock to sleep, as a rope to climb or to even wipe their nose. We all did that didn’t we? I love the illustrations. The entire book is very colorful. I was very happy while reading as I recollected all the times I used to wipe my face with my moms or even my grand mother’s cotton sarees.

On the cover, they also give illustrations of how to wear a saree. Very neat and easy to understand. My son looks at those pictures and says “akka cheera kattukuntondi (akka is wearing a saree)”. I wish the book hadn’t ended so soon. There could have been more illustrations and more text too. But, I also should say that it is perfect for Sarath. He loves that book. When ever I take out this book at bed time, his face lights up.

This book is available at Amazon.com. A must read for kids of any age. I am sure even the youngest readers will love the book for its vibrant colors.
