This fun book is about a little girl who is chosen to be the flower girl in her Aunt Robin's wedding. Sarah enjoys wearing a pretty dress and spending time with her extended family, but she feels very nervous about walking down the long aisle of the church while everyone is watching. However, she overcomes her fear and has a wonderful time time at the wedding.

The illustrations in this book are really fluid and colorful, giving the story a fantastical feel. This is a great book about having fun with family and dealing with nervousness. ( )
