Is it great to be a flower girl? Lots of girls think so and author Lynelle Woolley has captured this excitement in a series of children’s books called Flower Girl World. However, the appeal of these stories goes further than flower girls participating in weddings. The main theme of the books is friendship, and learning that differences can be a good thing. Flower Girl World, a club of sorts, has the makings of The Babysitter’s Club or the American Girl series by bringing together multiethnic characters, each with a unique point of view and their own story to tell.

Rosie and the Wedding Day Rescue – Rosie never wanted to be a flower girl, but she accepts the request from Greta, her former babysitter anyway.

However, when she walks into the chaos in the bridal party suite, it’s not long before the bride is in tears and the wedding is delayed. In order to save the day, the flower girls all have to help in the best way they know how and for Rosie that means using her special detective skills fast!
