From author Sandhya Parappukkaran and illustrator Michelle Pereira—the creators of The Boy Who Tried to Shrink His Name—comes Amma’s Sari, a tender and endearing picture book about family history, culture, and enduring love

My sari is a memory of love.

Shreya admires her mother’s saris, whose silky swirls embrace her every morning. But her spirits plummet at the stares and whispers that the sari attracts. When Sherya asks her mother why she wears a sari, Amma answers the question with family stories brimming with generations of love.

In this gentle and empowering picture book with vibrant full-color art, Shreya moves from embarrassment to pride as she learns that Amma’s sari is much more than a beautiful piece of clothing. It is also a connection to their shared past and the love and care woven into their family history and heritage.


"A tender, lovingly rendered tribute to the joys and complexities of the parent-child bond."
