Flower Girl World, a new publishing property and lifestyle brand, captures the fun, fantasy, and excitement of being a young girl in a wedding. Through an informative website, engaging book series, and exciting gift options, Flower Girl World is the one-stop, definitive resource for flower girls in real weddings and imaginary play.
On the comprehensive interactive website, www.FlowerGirlWorld.com, girls can enjoy fun games, crafts, and activities, while parents and brides will find all the help they need to create magical and memorable experiences for their special flower girl. A go-to destination for flower girl information and fun, the site features practical advice, helpful facts, checklists, gift ideas, and lots of entertainment for young girls.
Flower Girl World appeals to girls throughout the flower girl age range by offering picture books like Camellia the Fabulous Flower Girl and a chapter book series that launches with Rosie and the Wedding Day Rescue, both written by Lynelle Woolley and illustrated by Karen Wolcott. The books feature themes of friendship, leadership, and acceptance, and share the same colorful characters - girls with different personalities, talents, and interests, who come from different parts of the country and diverse backgrounds.
The books can be purchased individually or as part of a Celebration Kit that enhances a flower girl's experience from the moment she's asked to be in a wedding through the time she's sharing memories with family and friends.
In addition to the two books, the kit also includes:
Official Flower Girl World certificate
Mini felt basket
Glitter flower stickers
Wedding day activity book
6 collectible character bookmarks to share with friends
