About the Book

The Wedding of Q and U is geared for the early elementary years and will serve as a wonderful teaching tool!  Young readers and spellers will have a creative way to remember the spelling rule of the letters Q and U.  The idea to write this book was inspired by the author’s very own teaching experiences.  Beginning in 2001, and during each subsequent year of teaching first grade and Kindergarten, Denise Hreha’s students performed a mock wedding in the classroom. Thus, her students never forgot that the letter Q is followed by the letter U, in almost all words.  From the adorable, colorful illustrations, to the teachable moments throughout this book, primary school teachers will love to share this story with their students. Now every class can experience a wedding of their own!
