Starred Review:

Kesar and the Lullaby Birds

Kesar’s little sister, Kamal, will not sleep at night; she keeps the whole village awake. When Kesar’s ba comes to visit, she tells her a story about a woman whose embroidered animals came to life; Kesar is inspired to try a new approach to bedtime. Set in the Kutch region of India, the bright colors, intricate patterns, and delicate details of Indian attire and architecture are standout features. A glossary in the back provides definitions and pronunciations of Kutchi and Gujarati words used.
