Book: Where Three Oceans Meet (2021)
Author: Rajani LaRocca
Genre: Picture Book
Opening Lines of the Book…
We decide to travel to the very tip of India, where three oceans meet. Pati, Mommy, and me.
It’s like a travelogue! It’s fun to see the three generations (grandmother, mother, and daughter, although I believe Pati means the paternal grandmother) make their plans to go to India. And then, we get to journey with them. We go on boats and whiz through the countryside on a train.
At the climax of the story, we get to the tip of India at Kanyakumai … where the three oceans meet. One of my favorite lines connects the women to the titular three oceans: “Pati, Mommy, and me. One who lives in India, one who moved to America, and one who belongs to both.”
Thank you @BethStilborn for recommending this book to me!

This picture book review is part of a monthly challenge I’ve set for myself. I’ve asked my friends on Twitter to recommend picture books they’ve enjoyed reading (published within the past 3 years). I will choose to feature one each month.
Note: The original 12 Challenge isn’t necessarily just for picture books. But I’ve set it up this way for my own challenge.
