The book is a visual (there is a tiny amount of text, probably just the right amount for reading to a young person) look at a young girl's first experience as a flower girl at a wedding. The girl is very cute and does a good job in her role. She's a great little actress/model and she should be very proud of the work she did here.
One reason that I'm a bit torn about the review, however, is that while I think the photographer is very talented and the photos are technically adequate (or more), the book is lacking a sense of journalistic flow, the feeling that you're experiencing this wedding through the eyes of the subject. The photos have no sense of spontaneity or mystery--and photos for a kid's book should always invoke a somewhat mystical feel, I think. A lot of the photos seem very staged and way too formal (some look like a J C Penny dress advertisement). I was attracted to the book by the soulfulness of the cover--a really sweet shot of feet in fancy ballet shoes. I was hoping the book would continue that kind of Jill Krementz ("A Very Young Dancer" ...Read more ›
The high quality photos are really fun to look at. It is done in such a way that it feels like another young girl is talking to you and making you feel like you are part of her day. There are photos of other flower girls, and then the girl telling the story first person makes up the rest of the book.
The book then goes through the steps of the wedding progressively so that it really does prepare the flower girls for the wedding in a way that will take away the scary factor if there is any. My pre-teen daughter was very interested in this book and enjoyed reading it too. She said it would be the perfect give to give to the flower girl before a wedding to help her not be nervous or afraid. It also made her excited for weddings too.
I highly recommend this book for young girls especially and absolutely for that flower girl in your life, should you be needing one or are related to one.
The text that accompanies the pictures is short and easy and tells the story of being a flower girl. While many of the kids I've observed in weddings aren't always into it, somd are especially the older ones. My grandkid was a flower girl in a family wedding last year. She was totally into the excitement and loved the dress and the attention she garnered. She would have totally liked this book.
I liked this book. A simple story based on a simple premise, but it captured the excitement of a wedding and conveys the importance of being a special part of a wedding.
It is a story about a little girl who is was asked to be a Flower Girl in her aunt's wedding. The text is quite basic and does show some aspects about a wedding that a little one might be interested in seeing. Perhaps this is a benefit of having realistic pictures.
The photos are artistic and lovely and for the price I would definitely consider buying it for a little girl who was going to be in a wedding.
The pictures are stunning and large so you can share the book with your little one and you both have enough room to view it together. For the age group ths is intended this seems to be lack content. The author may have written a few more words per page. This seems a bit too childish in that respect but other than that It was a joy to read.
