SANDHYA RAO is Graduate Adviser and Associate Professor in the Department of Mass Communication at Southwest Texas State University.From Booklist:
Pres-K. Yes, this will probably be of most interest to children already familiar with sari-wearing family members. But many other kids have probably seen saris and wondered about them. How does that long piece of cloth turn into a garment? The question is answered on the endpapers, which show a girl demonstrating step-by-step how to wrap a sari. The text, one line on each double-page spread, is whimsical: "My mother's sari is long like a train"; "When I am tired, it wraps itself around me." One girl mischievously uses her sari to blow her nose. Subtle backgrounds, lightly decorated with objects from nature, provide a gentle showcase for the children and the saris. Rao makes an interesting artistic choice by using childlike drawings to represent the kids and photographs of the cloths, bringing the fabric designs, colors, and folds up close. A winsome look at a fresh subject. Ilene Cooper
