A vibrant and deliciously amusing suspenseful story set in India about food and gardening, anticipation, and generosity. Every morning, Jiva works in his garden until the sun turns as red as a bride's sari. He plants peas and beans, potatoes and tomatoes, eggplants and okra in his vegetable patch. While his friend Ruvji admires his plants Jiva sings, "Plump peas, sweet peas, Lined-up-in-the-shell peas. Peas to munch, peas to crunch I want a feast of peas for lunch!" But each time Jiva is ready to pick the peas for his feast, they're already gone. He tries making a scarecrow and a fence, but it's no use. Who might have taken them this time?

An Indian grandmother and her American granddaughter explore culture, imagination, and individuality through a sari. Every day, Rupa's grandmother wears a beautiful Indian sari. Some are made of cotton and others of fine silk. Each is brightly colored and very pretty. "Don’t you ever want to wear a green dress like me?" Rupa asks. But Dadima prefers to wear her traditional saris. Dadima shares all the wonderful things that saris can do—from becoming an umbrella in a rainstorm to providing a deep pouch to carry seashells. Soon Rupa's own imagination is sparked as she envisions saris protecting her in the scary Gir Jungle, bandaging up an injured knee, and holding a special secret for her and Dadima to share. Inspired by Kashmira Sheth's American-born daughters' curiosity, My Dadima Wears a Sari introduces readers to this wardrobe staple from the Indian subcontinent, the different styles and ways it can be worn, and its beauty and benefits. Yoshiko Jaeggi's graceful, fabric-inspired watercolor illustrations offer readers a glimpse into the culture and customs of India, while reinforcing universal themes of love and the importance of family. An author's note explores Sheth's childhood memories of wearing her first saris and back matter photos display the process of wrapping and wearing one.

Experience the magic of an Indian wedding in story about a girl playing a fun, traditional game on her sister’s wedding day. Sona's big sister Nisha is getting married and Sona has been given an important job. She has to steal the groom's shoes. Her grandmother tells her that this tradition is intended to help the bride's and groom's families get to know each other. If Sona is successful, Anil-ji will have to bargain with her to get his shoes back and she can ask for a special reward. Sona has never attended a wedding before, so she's unfamiliar with this Indian tradition-as well as many of the other magical experiences that will occur before and during the special event. There's so much to do: making garlands and rangoli designs to decorate their home, welcoming relatives from India, and helping Nisha-ben get ready. And there are so many exciting things happening: an artist draws patterns on the hands of the girls and women at a mehndi party, Dadima fancy braids Sona’s hair—and the groom arrives on a white horse! Still, Sona can't stop worrying about how she will steal Anil-ji's shoes. Fortunately her know-it-all cousin Vishal, who has arrived from India, is available to help Sona come up with a plan. In an author's note, Kashmira Sheth describes her childhood experiences attending weddings in India (she never got to steal the shoes!) and explains the significance of the Hindu customs and rituals described in the story.
