How To Get Married by Me the Bride

Lloyd-Jones, Sally. 2009. How To Get Married by Me, the Bride. Illustrated by Sue Heap. Random House.

If you loved Sally Lloyd-Jones' How To Be A Baby by Me, The Big Sister, then you'll most likely appreciate this latest book. It stars the same adorable children. This one is a perfect choice for the little girls in your life who love to play make believe and dress up, those who like to "play" wedding.
When you want to get married,
first you have to find someone you canmarry.
You can marry your best friend
or your teacher
or your pet
or your daddy.
(And sometimes you can marry a flower.)
You can marry someone who is just like you,
or someone who isn't,
someone who lives near your house,
or someone who doesn't,
Actually you can marry anyone you like!
(Except they need to like you back.)
It's an undoubtedly silly book, a playful look at love and romance from a child's point of view. The style is similar to that of the first one. It's cute. Very cute with lots of small details to bring smiles. Such as this little gem of a wedding invitation,

Please come to our wedding
because we kindly request
the pleasure of your company.
There will be candy.
I liked it. You might like it too. If you've read this one, I'd love to hear your thoughts on it!
