So cute! A sweet young boy 's aunt is getting married and he's asked to be her "ring bear". He wants to do his best and he and his young sister try to work out what that means, as only young kids can. When their ideas go awry, he is lovingly reassured by his mom about the special role he'll play in the wedding. The story is told in simple words and accompanied by bright, comic-style illustrations. The rhyme was occasionally prioritized over word choice and flow, so give this a pre-read or two before reading aloud. This will definitely be an engaging and relatable tale for kids and I'm sure they'll be very invested in the outcome. Many thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review!

This is a very cute book about how children sometimes misunderstand things that adults say. In this case a little boy overhears his mother and aunt talking about her upcoming wedding and how she wants him to be a "ring bear". All kinds of images pop in his head. He goes and gets his smart sister to see if she knows what this is all about. They go and find the Halloween costumes and find him a bear costume. But he becomes sad thinking about wearing the costume and scaring people. Mom comes and saves the day by explaining how he will make everyone proud and walk a ring down the aisle.
