Top Customer Reviews
Joking aside, "How to Get Married" is a charming tale of a bossy older sister daydreaming of her wedding day, written by an accomplished Christian author. I'm not sure where "radical indoctrination" comes in, but angry detractors would be well-served to read another Sally Lloyd-Jones' book, "The Jesus Storybook Bible" before casting stones.
From the creators of How to Be a Baby... by Me, the Big Sister, comes a rambunctious and entertaining "guide" to getting married, narrated by an overzealous little bride. There are a few rules-"you can marry anyone you like! (Except they need to like you back)"-and traditions ("Now you throw a big bunch of flowers at people's heads"), but this bride's idea of marriage is all about pretend: when it comes time to say "I do," she's wearing a paper crown and the groom, a feathery, blue wig. With just a wisp of practical advice, this is a stylish and witty companion book. Ages 4-8.
While some of the advice in this funny book is meant to make you laugh, like "Never get married when it's dark because you won't be able to see and might marry the wrong person"; some is too true, like "If you marry a noisy shouting person, he will give you a headache."
HOW TO GET MARRIED is meant to be a children's book, and succeeds marvelously as such, but I can also imagine it as a giveaway at bridal showers. It will be appreciated wherever its readers have a sense of the wry and witty.
It must be noted, given all the ridiculous comments about this book, that this book is written from the wonderful world of a child's imagination. Despite what some people think, it has not been written as a guide to making marriage laws. Please enjoy this book for what it is, the beautiful, playful world of childrens' minds. Why must we create our own political agenda for everything? Please allow your child--and yourself--the chance to enjoy their youthful innocence. Once upon a time, you too really did think you could marry your teddy bear.
