Sparkling with voice and charm, this picture book about a fashionable kid out to prove she’s not as small as everyone thinks is perfect for kids eager to grow up, and for those who love to play dress-up.

Being a little kid isn’t always fun and games. Sometimes, it’s downright annoying.

When a little girl tires of being treated like she’s TOO little, she sets out to prove to her family that she can do ANYTHING she puts her mind to . . .

. . . including putting on a colorful, twinkly, silky sari. Sure, they’re long and unwieldy—but that only means her family will be even more impressed when she puts it on all by herself.

Naturally, there are some hiccups along the way, but she discovers that she’s not the only one in her family who has set out with something to prove, with hilariously chaotic results. That’s what photo albums are for!

Learning Value
HOW TO WEAR A SARI is about an Indian girl who wants to be grown up and to not be treated like a cute child any more. To do that, she tries to put on her own sari. All she wants to do is impress her family and show them how grown she is, but children shouldn't grow up too quickly! This girl is the perfect example of that.

What I loved: The bold colors capture your attention and I love the diversity. We need more books from different cultures so it's refreshing to see the Indian culture addressed. The little girl is relatable and I love her puppy side-kick. The fact that she has issues putting it on is realistic and adds more character to the book.

What left me wanting more: I'm still not sure what exactly a sari is or the purpose. It would have added more to the learning value if this was discussed, even if it was in the back of the book.

Final Verdict: I would recommend this to children who want to expand their cultural library and absolutely love the representation of an Indian girl. We need more books like this and the humor will bring a smile to children's faces.
