Grandma's Wedding Album
     2011-May-25  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

温暖的图画书《祖母的结婚相册》

attic*, they come across a tuxedo* and bridal gown*. Quick to play dress-up, they show Grandma their new looks, prompting* Grandma to dig out her wedding album and take the two grandchildren on a walk down memory lane*.

The wedding album does more than show photos of a younger Grandma and Poppy; it explains the simple rituals of courtship* and the different ceremonial* steps of a basic American wedding -- from the invitations to the fittings, from the ringbearer* to the flower girl -- all done through the medium of a photo album. There's even a pasted-in invitation that opens up.

Written by Harriet Ziefert, who has dedicated* the book to her five grandchildren, and illustrated by Karla Gudeon, "Grandma's Wedding Album" combines straightforward storytelling and intricate* painting as the authors' previous book, "One Red Apple."

What's more, "Grandma's Wedding Album" has an appendix* explaining some of the customs from weddings around the world: in Korea, the groom gives a wooden goose to the mother-in-law, while in Scandinavia* the bride's parents put coins in her shoes!

"Grandma's Wedding Album" does a great job of explaining the wedding tradition to youngsters, doing so in an attractive package with interesting details.
