Aunt Robin bestows upon young Sarah, the flower girl position. Sarah is exhilarated as she picks out her dress yet is concerned about events that could ruin her opportunity in this picture book. My Book Eyes found it pleasing to read about a child character that is fretful about herself yet mature enough to give up her room to guests, console the ring bearer at rehearsal, help others get dressed on  the wedding day, give herself a pep talk and have fun too.  Illustrations of the whole wedding experience are well depicted and conjure up memories of what it is like to participate in  or attend a wedding with its routines and family members.
