Barbara Bottner's book, Flower Girl, came into our house just this week, creating a perfect read aloud for girls listening to my experiences as a flower girl. They are all old enough to remember my sister's wedding just a few years ago, which was a somewhat less traditional wedding not requiring a flower girl.
I loved the photographs in this story as a young girl looks forward to her Aunt Penny's wedding and dressing up, having her hair done, and taking part in a wedding. I enjoyed Bottner's book and can imagine that any young girl - even a girl who has never had the experience of being a flower girl- will appreciate this story which shows in real life detail what happens at a wedding.
