229 Reflection, Connection & Affection: Mama’s Saris
I really enjoyed the review of the book. I think this is a good book since it teaches about a diverse culture and practice. In order for kids to grow healthy, they must be introduced to different culture other than their own. Through this book, kids will learn a bout a different race, and a different practice. In my opinion the book touches an important concept: the importance of passing our tradions to our kids. It is our responsibility that we keep our traditions alive through passing it to our kids. One more thing I loved a bout the book is the fact that it shows a touchable moment between a mother and a daughter. We all need to pay attention to the importance of such moments since one day it will be all we will leave our kids with: a sweet memory of a charitable moment
