Wedding Days

Norma Simon, Author, Kathleen Tucker, Editor, Christa Kieffer, Photographer Albert Whitman & Company $13.95 (32p) ISBN 978-0-8075-8703-4
With little fanfare, Simon introduces the idea of weddings, loosely concocted around the dating, courtship and marriage of ``Aunt Jean'' and ``Uncle Mike.'' Many kinds of weddings are discussed, as well as the details of sending invitations, finding a place to hold a wedding and what might transpire during the ceremony (``Aunt Jean's mother cried a little''). Second weddings are mentioned, as are anniversaries, and the literal implications of taking care of someone in sickness and in health. A flat tone and pedestrian writing turn an inherently interesting idea for children into a simplistic listing. Kieffer's pictures add some appeal, but, except for those in search of the most basic information, this isn't very satisfying. Ages 3-9. (April)
