Starred Review:

A Gift for Amma

Market Day in India

2020 INDIES Winner
Silver, Picture Books (Children's)

Experience the colorful chaos of market day in India as a young girl shops for something special among the stalls. Forget boring brown and black: here you’ll find terracotta and cardamom, charcoal and kebabs. A Gift for Amma is a brilliant exploration of the five senses. Each full-color spread focuses on one hue and includes a new sight, sound, or smell, shared in a dazzling, charming array. It’s a must-have for primary libraries seeking fresh material for required curricula.
