The beautiful and vibrant book is such a fun read! My kiddos and I both really enjoyed it! Throughout the story, a tailor upcycles fabric that was initially from his saafa into something for one of his family members, until it wears out for that purpose, and then he creates something else for a different family member. I love the use of upcycling in the book as not just a means to be thrifty, but a different way to think about things and to truly appreciate them, as opposed to the consumerism that drives many lives now. This is a wonderful children's book from a unique perspective!
