Sandhya Rao is a master in making the simple things of life - Exotic!
A little girl, surrounded by her mother’s saris indulges in flights of fantasy.
The sari becomes a train, a river, a rope, a place to hide and when the playing is done – a hammock in which a tired little girl can gently swing, under the shade of a tree!
This book lends itself to a tremendous amount of creative activity, demonstrating that a creative child can find ‘toys’ around him. Even an empty carton box, a piece of fabric or a quilt can engage him in play and activity for hours on end. Thus, further stimulating his creativity and imagination.
The book is beautifully illustrated by Nina Sabnani, using a wide variety of woven and printed saris, with a rich background reflecting the sari designs.
The book also includes a very helpful demonstration on how to wear a sari.
A veritable treat!
