Monsoon by Uma Krishnaswami, Illustrated by Jamel Akib

Pooja! Howdy. Thanks for chiming in. We'll have to let the CCBC know about the suggestions here. Mama's Saris is a wonderful book!

Ooh! Great list! I'm excited by how many I've read -- and how many are new to me. And may I point out that Ginu was a professor of mine at grad school? She's a hoot.

Tanita! Glad you stopped by. I've found out about some new titles, too. I'm looking forward to seeing what the CCBC comes up with.

The Road to Mumbai by Ruth Jeyaveeran remains one of my favorites--it takes images like snake charmers, camels, extravaganzas of weddings, and so on, and weaves them into a child's imaginary journey in a loving, wonderful way.

The Road to Mumbai sounds so good. I will look for it!
