By Midwest Book Review

Wonderfully written by Uma Krishnaswami and deftly illustrated by Jamel Akib, Bringing Asha Home is a story for young readers ages 5 to 9 and set at the time of Rakhi, a Hindu holiday which is quite special for brothers and sisters. An only child, Arun greatly desires to have a sister to share Rakhi with and his parents are hoping to adopt a little girl. But first they must all struggle with getting governmental approval to have a little girl named Asha join their family fro halfway around the world. Bringing Asha Home is a warm and joyous story that would grace any school or community library picture book collection.
