Book Pick for the Box - Henna On My Hands
Written by Fawzia Gilani Williams, Illustrated by Ajanta Guhathakurta
Squiggles and swirls, loops and curls, diamonds and dots. . . and a small surprise! The little girl watches as her mother traces the cool, moist patterns on her palm. Then comes the waiting. The henna must dry, nothing must touch it – and she can be patient no longer! The art of drawing with henna takes on a little girl’s infectious thrill as decorative designs swirl around the pages to evoke the rich, gorgeous look of henna on the hand.
