Worried that your flower girl or ring bearer might treat your reception hall like a playground? Present your littlest attendants with a copy of Heading to the Wedding by Sara Shacter. This whimsical children's book follows the story of Patrick and Evie, two children who are invited to their cousin's wedding. The pair quickly learn that their normal antics are not appropriate for wedding receptions. Covering topics like table manners, wedding toasts, and dancing, Heading to the Wedding is a great teaching tool for young children. The book even features a glossary of wedding terms with easy to understand definitions. To order a copy, visit amazon.com. —Allison Bean
