Overview

Heidi Klum loves this book!  "A great bedtime read for the little ones!"Camellia discovers friendship and fun when she learns to share the spotlight with two other fabulous flower girls. Camellia Azalea Gardenia Bloom thinks she knows everything about being a flower girl. She can dance down the aisle, smile in a special way, and drop petals in a perfect path behind her. There's only one problem—Cami has never been in a wedding. That changes when her Aunt Bella pops the question and asks Camellia to be her flower girl. Cami is thrilled, until she discovers there will be two other girls joining her down the aisle. Now this little girl has a big decision to make: should she force the other girls to play by her rules or join in the fabulous flower girl fun? Featuring humor and fast-paced fun, the Flower Girl World series is committed to diversity in children's books as it highlights themes of friendship, leadership, acceptance, growing up, and girl power. It also introduces global customs and cultures. Blogger Melissa Glynn of Julia's Bookbag says, " I think girls would just FLIP over this series! I love the message, which does not center around dressing up and looking pretty. The stories focus on friendships, on finding confidence in one's abilities, and on doing what you can to assist others." Fans of Fancy Nancy, Pinkalicious, Angelina Ballerina, and Ladybug Girl will love this colorful children's picture book. It will appeal to any young girl ages 4-8, whether or not she is a flower girl in a wedding. If she is in a wedding, it makes the perfect flower girl gift! Lexile Level: 520LFountas and Pinnell: Guided Reading Level: K, Grade Level Equivalent: 2, Interest Level by Grade: Pre-K-3 Award winner: A recipient of the prestigious Mom's Choice Award. Look for more books in the Flower Girl World series:Rosie and the Wedding Day RescueIris and the Aloha Wedding AdventureStarr and the High Seas Wedding DramaFun-to-Wear Flower Girl HairFlower Girl Fun Kit
