As a first grade teacher, my students have always remembered why Q and U are together in words. They added so many more Qu words to their spelling lists and loved the play on classic fairy tales. This book pulled it all together for us before having the mock wedding in the classroom! Every primary grade teacher should have a copy of this hearty, well-published, sturdy book.

My students and my own children just adore this book! We love the vows and the little things that come to mind as you carefully look at each page. This book is well-thought out and creative. It is obvious that the author knows young children and was trying to convey the meaning behind having a classroom wedding into a book that teaches why the two letters are together in our language. The book is worth the money, well-made, quality printing, and over 40 pages! It even has a whole glossary of Qu words for discussing afterward! I often give this book to children as a gift as well as to my children's teachers. The storyline is cute, teaching kids to think problems through. I refute the review that the print in illegible...this font makes it fancy, just a weddings are, plus children should be exposed to various types of print. Also, my students had absolutely no trouble reading the text. Go get yours today!

Author and illustrator have captured the quaintness of Q and U. Happy reading for any youngster. This enjoyable stroll in syllable city is very highly recommended. The author of this book should be commended for the uniqueness of this story for children. Illustrations are superior to many of the children's books that I have perused. I give this book an outstanding recommendation

This interesting story as to why U follows Q in many words was so enjoyed by my students! All my first graders took turns reading the book aloud to the parents and I was so proud! The girls just loved the fancy print, how unique! A fun read aloud for any teacher and a VERY cute story line.

The curly lettering throughout the text is difficult to read as a read-aloud for the teacher and is also very difficult for a young child. The storyline is not very interesting.

This book stands out from the rest! A cute way to demonstrate the origin of why Q is followed by U in almost all words of the English language.

As a parent, I enjoyed reading this book to my girls. They loved the idea of 2 letters being married, and always standing together in words. The vows were the best!

The concept and inspiration behind this book has been in the works since 2000 and has spread nation-wide! This story is original and fun and is a wonderful supplement to instruction focusing on the letters of the alphabet. This book is one kids will love to read. The teachable moments, as well as the colorful illustrations will keep young readers and writers engaged. It is worth the price. Printed with high-quality materials, it is 44 pages! A must-see...

As a teacher of young children, I can attest that this book is unique and is filled with teachable moments, witty wording, and even includes an index of many Qu words, as well as references in the illustrations to classic fairy tales. My students really loved the original vows and the remembered the spelling rule of Q and U. Superb! A must-have for early grade teachers.
