Sona and the Wedding Game

by Kashmira Sheth
Illustrated by Yoshiko Jaeggi

Published by Peachtree, 2015
32 pages
ISBN: 978-1561457359

Ages 4-8

Sonaís sister is getting married and her know-it-all cousin Vishal has come with her grandparents from India to attend. He canít believe how little Sona knows about Hindu weddings, including the fact that itís Sonaís responsibility as a younger sibling of the bride to steal the groomís shoes during the ceremony and then bargain with him for their return. Nervous but determined, Sona comes up with a plan, and sheís even willing to involve Vishal in carrying it out. An engaging story draws readers right into Sonaís experience, with details about the wedding preparations and ceremony seamlessly incorporated as Sona describes being part of traditions that are new to her yet steeped in family and culture. And when the time comes, thereís just the right amount of tension leading to great delight as Sona successfully steals the shoes and bargains for the perfect exchange. An authorís note provides additional information about Hindu weddings, including the fact that the details may vary widely from family to family and place to place.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
