I read a book called A Saree for Ammi. It is about a wiver family. The father dyes the threads and the mother makes sarees to sell. They have two girls, one is big and the other is small. The mother makes beautiful sarees!

One day, the mother makes a very, very beautiful saree. So the small girl wants her mother to wear that saree. But the mom never wears the sarees she makes. So the two girls have an idea!

They count their mony but they don’t have enuf. They go and get all of the things they are not using to a man. The man’s name is Jhamu Ka Ka. They give him the stuff and he gives them some money but they still don’t have enuf. They just need a few more.

They go to their next door nabour Amina Khala. The two girls went and helped her wiv the threads. After they were done, Amina Khala gave them some mony. Then the girls counted the monys. And they had the right amount of mony to buy their mom a saree!!!

The kids cared about their mother and they bot her one of her own sarees. If I was there, I would love to help them! I would have shared half of my mony with them. My mom also has sarees. The sarees are beautiful.
