Where Three Oceans Meet By Rajani LaRocca Illustrated By Archana Sreenivasan

Back of Book:

Sejal, Mommy, and Pati travel together to the southern tip of India. Along the way, they share meals, visit markets, and catch up with old friends.

For Pati, the trip retraces spaces she knows well. For Mommy, it’s a return to the place she grew up. For Sejal, it’s a discovery of new sights and sounds. The family finds their way to Kanyakumari, where three oceans meet, and delight in making it to the end of the earth together.

This own voices picture book celebrates the beauty of India and the enduring love of family.

My Review:

I received a copy of this picture book from Abrahms Books Publishing in exchange for an honest review.

Where Three Voices Meet by Rajani Larocca is a stunning story based on the Rajani’s own trip through South India. The book focuses on three generations and the unique experience each one has as they visit “the end of the earth” The text is written in the first person which allows readers to experience the sights, sounds, and tastes of India. The three oceans then become reminiscent of the three generations (Sejal, her mother, and grandmother)The illustrations by Archana Sreenivasan are done in a beautiful mix of vibrant, and soft colors that bring the different areas of India to life. The back of the book has notes from the author, and illustrator about how this book was written, and illustrated. Where Three Oceans Meet is a wonderful tribute to the importance of, tradition, culture, and family.
