Our know-it-all narrator is at it again, in this hilarious companion to the New York Times bestselling How to Be a Baby . . . by Me, the Big Sister. Take it from the six-year-old “bride-to-be”: No one will marry you if you don’t ever brush your hair and it looks like a bird’s nest back there. And never get married when it’s dark, because you might not see the groom, and marry the wrong person. When you have found your Own True Love, you must ask permission. “Can I marry you please?” you say. “Yes, please,” he says.
Here is the perfect book for kids who play pretend and throw mock weddings, and also for grown-ups who are actual brides-to-be. And don't miss the third installment in the How-to Series, How to Get a Job . . . By Me, the Boss.
