Reviews

"The easy rhyming and vivid colors make this an unforgettable look into Hindu culture." --Kirkus Reviews

"Suitable as a gentle introduction to Hindu culture, this simple reflection will complement multicultural collections. The beautiful and detailed illustrations, such as those of Ammi's traditional dress and jewelry, provide additional cultural context." --Booklist

"Shraya's story defines and affirms important values of Hindu culture -- and nudges gender norms, as well."--Publishers Weekly

"The story is simple but incredibly touching and the words are accompanied by the most vibrant illustrations, ones that truly suit the vibrancy of South Asian culture. This may also be a great book to reach for when introducing Hinduism to anyone who is curious or confused about it." --Book Riot

"Shraya makes her picture book debut with gentle rhymes and warm whimsy, amplified by Perara's richly hued illustrations." --School Library Journal
