Book Review: Granny's Sari

Asha Nehemiah's book Granny's Sari published by CBT is actually a must in every child's collection. It is a slice of life story, where a little girl's grandmother loses her  favourite green sari and they set out on a trip to find the sari. Along the sari's trail, they meet some very interesting people who have seen the sari and sometimes even used it - from nabbing a thief to plucking some mangoes. The conversations the duo have with the two people are small and crisp, but they can easily be used as examples to teach a child about casual social encounters and how small talk is made. The book is set in a Indian small town and many of us can identify with the ethos - casual and comfortable . The illustrations are beautiful and very child centred

We recommend this book, not just for the story but also for the very important message of sharing and caring towards the end .
