Product Description

For early readers looking to explore how they can make a difference to the environment, Sona Sharma has loads of great ideas. […] Soundar weaves elements of Indian traditional customs seamlessly into the story, which is well-paced in short chapters, illustrated by Jen Khatun that readers new to chapter books will appreciate.This gentle tale is one of a series of delightful chapter books about Sona and her extended family and is peppered with interesting details about Hindu traditions, culture and food. The short chapters and expressive black-and-white illustrations make it ideal for independent young readers.The book is full of lively, engaging pictures, and it’s a perfect length for kids my son’s age; it’s aimed at 6-9 year olds. […] Lots of big ideas weave through this deceptively simple story of a girl trying to make a difference but, even more, trying to get others to make a difference too.

Sona Sharma combats climate change.
When Sona learns about the climate crisis at school and is very worried that no one is doing enough to combat it, she takes up the challenge herself. But Appa isn't amused when Sona throws out her baby sister's nappies and Thatha isn't happy when she tells him to get rid of his colour-coded plastic files. When Sona learns that many of the kolams – the traditional art that people draw in front of their homes to celebrate the winter months and the festival season – are not organic, she sets out to make some big changes by getting everyone involved.

Chitra Soundar grew up in Chennai, India. An award-winning author of more than 40 books for children,she loves writing picture books, fiction, non-fiction and verse. Chitra travels the world visiting schools and appearing at festivals to bring Indian stories to children everywhere.
Jen Khatun's work is inspired by the natural world, the books on her shelves and the hidden magical moments found in everyday life. She says, "Being of Bangladeshi heritage meant that Chitra's story reminded me of the close bonds, traditions and memories of my family life. As a grown up, I cherish every profound life-teaching my family gifted me; they have made me who I am today."
