Sarah at the Wedding - a bookwrap

Everyone loves to attend a wedding!  

Winnie the Pooh – A. A. Milne sums it up perfectly

“If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.” 

“Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. “Pooh?” he whispered.
“Yes, Piglet?”
“Nothing,” said Piglet, taking Pooh’s hand. “I just wanted to be sure of you.” 

“We’ll be Friends Forever, won’t we, Pooh?’ asked Piglet.
Even longer,’ Pooh answered.” 

“If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together… there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart… I’ll always be with you.”

About the book...

"Today is a special day.  It's a party.  Not just a birthday party, but a really big party... a wedding!  Aunt Olivia is getting married to William."

Sarah and Ian have been asked to be part of the bride and groom's very special day.  Ian has a spiffy suit to wear and Sarah has a brand new dress for the occasion.  Sarah will be the flower girl and Ian the ring bearer, both very important jobs at a wedding don't you agree? Together they also get to hold onto Aunt Olivia's veil as she walks up the aisle and to scatter fragrant flowers at the couple as they walk down the red carpet when the ceremony is complete. How fun will that be?  Oh boy, oh boy, it's going to be so much fun! 

This is the perfect book to share if your little one is going to attend or is a participant in a wedding.  It will give rise to questions and conversations regarding the rituals and happiness on such an extraordinary and exciting day as you read the book together.  

The illustrations are bright, heartwarming and full of action.  They include rich detail and show the emotions of the characters with excellence.  You are made to feel like a guest yourself at Aunt Olivia's (and now) Uncle William's wedding.  The story is simple but factual and the clever author has included a page at the end of the book where your child can indulge in fun wedding-related crafts.  How brilliant is that!  I highly recommend this fun book.

About the author/illustrator...

Pauline Oud was born in 1963 in Hilversum, The Netherlands.

She has been working as an illustrator for over 15 years now. After her graduation from art school in 1985 she worked as an artist and art teacher for a while before applying her knowledge to her first love; children’s books.

Before she starts working, she likes to start her days with an hour running to clear her head and think about her drawings. She likes to collect children’s books, because they give her so much inspiration. When she is out of inspiration, she also likes to visit the Museum of medieval Art to stare at the books her colleagues have illustrated some 700 years ago.

She currently lives in Bilthoven (the Netherlands) with her husband and her two children Roos and Walt.
