Goin’ to the Chapel…

Tis the season!  I’m going to a wedding shower tomorrow – to be followed in a few weeks by the actual ceremony.  If you’re going to a wedding this spring, you may want a story to read to your child that does not feature a Disney princess in the starring role.  There are some really good books out there, but the Disney marketing machine is so powerful, you may have to look a little harder to find these books:

Now We Can Have a Wedding! by Judy Cox

The Ring Bearer and The Flower Girl by Laura Godwin (how-to books for kids in this special role)

Flower Girl by Gail Herman

Flower Girl Butterflies by Elizabeth Fitzgerald Howard

Uncle Peter’s Amazing Chinese Wedding by Lenore Look

Here Comes the Bride by Beatrice Masini

Daisy Jane, Best-Ever Flower Girl by Megan McDonald

Here Comes Our Bride! by Ifeoma Onyefulu (focuses on a Nigerian wedding ceremony)

Wedding Flowers by Cynthia Rylant (The Cobble Street Cousins series)

Snapshots from the Wedding by Gary Soto (focuses on a Mexican American wedding ceremony)
