This month we celebrate Mother's Day and each book selected at The Cubby Corner reminds us of how special Mom is in so many ways. In this book Mama's Saris By Pooja Makhijani the young girl reminds us of how much we want to be or dress like Mom. It is a beautiful story of a young girl wanting to grow up and be like her mother.
Do you remember that time you looked at your Mom and said I want to wear that outfit, smell like that perfume, cook like that for my family! I remember my mothers office and her selection of books. Maybe that is where the love of reading started.
As a child we sometimes want to grow up to fast and be like our parents, and most of us parents aren't ready. This story is a reminder to us MOM's it is OK the day will come to share the passage with your child and hopefully the child will be walking in your footsteps.

Product Description (from Amazon) When a young girl eyes her mother's suitcase full of gorgeous silk, cotton and embroidered saris, she decides that she, too, should wear one, even though she is too young for such clothing. When the mother finally realizes how important it is for her little girl to feel like a big girl on her seventh birthday, she dresses up her daughter in the folds of a blue sari. Feeling grown-up and very pretty, the daughter is thrilled to look just like her mother, even if only for a day. Mama's Saris captures an elegant snapshot of every girl's wish to play dress up.
About a Sari (from Wikipedia) A sari or saree[note 1] is a strip of unstitched cloth, worn by females, ranging from four to nine yards in length that is draped over the body in various styles. It is popular in India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Burma, Malaysia, and Singapore. The most common style is for the sari to be wrapped around the waist, with one end then draped over the shoulder baring the midriff.
