This audiobook immerses listeners in the sounds of India as Sejal, her mother, and her grandmother visit Kanyakumari, a city at the southern edge of India "where three oceans meet." The setting comes to life with sound effects of noisy traffic, people talking, and Indian music. Sejal, who is visiting India for the first time from America, is enthralled by the markets, the food, and the iconic temples, as well as her grandmother's nine-yard saris. Narrator Subhadra Newton's slow, steady pace reflects the quiet, enduring love between the three generations of women. While the audiobook stands alone--for even more cultural immersion, listeners will want to see the illustrations, especially after listening to the illustrator's note.
