Here Come the Brides based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Here Come the Brides is a really cute book but it is pretty dated. Teachers could probably use it to show how traditions change over time or for students particularly interested in cultural practices. Although it is filled with many facts about different brides from around the world the book does not go into why these traditions exist.
