Read It and Sleep returns for 2018 with My Mother’s Sari by Sandhya Rao!
In My Mother’s Sari, a little girls sees her mothers sari as “”long like a train”” and that it “”fills the air with color when I dance and sing.”” A blue sari is a “”river””; a patterned one is a place to hide with her friends. Best of all, the youngster wraps herself in the vivid cloth because she loves how it makes her dream. The end papers demonstrate how to wrap the garment. Full-spread illustrations capture the colors and textures of the fabrics and the little girl’s wide-eyed playfulness and love of her mother’s attire.
Join us as we welcome a special guest reader, dancing artist and teacher, Rachna Ramya to read this lovely story. Enjoy free snacks and a fun art activity, and learn about the sari, where it comes from, and how to tie it!
As always, the first 20 families in attendance go home with a free copy of the featured book.
Read It and Sleep takes place January 26 at 7 p.m. For more information, visit www.charteroakcenter.org or call 860-310-2580.
