Gift for Amma, A: Market Day in India A young girl walks through her vibrant local Indian market in search of a present for her 'Amma' (mother).Each double page picks out a colour as the young girl muses over what to choose: but many things jostle for her attention or offer distracting temptations in the competing colours of the busy market. The lyrical text is perfect for reading aloud and Mariona Cabassa's illustrations offer a richly detailed accompaniment. A glossary of the items on sale in this market are given in pictures and the author's own photographs, and there is also an afterword describing markets in other parts of the world.
