Amma’s Sari

Sandhya Parappukkaran, Michelle Pereira

As a second-generation migrant, 6-year-old Shreya’s life tilts between her life at home and the outside world. While her love for family lifts her up, her spirits plummet at the stares and whispers that her mother’s sari attracts. Searching for balance, Shreya asks questions about her culture. But despite the beautiful stories her mother shares, Shreya’s internal and external struggle continues. But when Shreya finds herself lost in a crowd, it’s the shimmer of Amma’s sari that leads her to finding pride in her difference. Amma’s Sari is a powerful reflection on connection with family, the acceptance of difference, and the celebration of cultural heritage.

Themes of identity, inclusivity and cultural heritage will be of value to educators, librarians and young families.
