School Library Journal
K-Gr 2 A nostalgic look at the preparation for and celebration of a Jewish wedding in 1943 Brooklyn. Through the eyes of a younger brother, readers see the bride and her parents get ready for the ``big day.'' Tensions and excitement mount, especially at the last minute when the boy has to fill in as an usher for a serviceman who couldn't get a leave. The social customs of the times as well as the traditions of a Jewish wedding are aptly conveyed through the story and the spritely black-and-white line drawings. The joy at the reception is illustrated with humor as friends and relatives dance the hora, the jitterbug, and even the conga. As in My Bar Mitzvah (Morrow, 1985) , Rosenblum successfully captures a time and place that grandparents may wish to share with their grandchildren. Micki S. Nevett, Temple Beth Emeth Library, Albany, N.Y.
