Eric has created a simply beautiful journey that explores planning and celebrating a wedding through the eyes of a child. Andy's thoughts and feelings as he joins in each aspect of this joyous moment in his Uncle's life serves to remind us all of the beauty, innocence, and truth that is the union of two humans who love and are committed to eachother - far away from the 'adult' marriage debate. Two uncles are truly better than one...just ask my nephew!

Eric Ross does a wonderful job in his book "My Uncle's Wedding" at showing there is absolutly no difference between a wedding for a same-sex couple and a wedding for a heterosexual couple. The focus is on the nephew and all he is going through in helping them plan the wedding and in being a part of the wedding. The exact same book could be written about a heterosexual couple getting married from the perspective of their nephew. No politics, no emphasis on what is common vs what is different about this wedding or this couple just a simple story about a beautiful wedding. I plan to buy a copy for all my friends with kids (and perhaps even a few without).

I don't have my own kids yet, but I bought this book anyways. Eric Ross has shared with us a truly sweet and necessary story. It's a great step towards making marriage equality more acceptable and natural in our own lives, and counteracting the hate and ignorance our community suffers on a daily basis. I believe our time will be remembered for its inequality, and someday we will look back and realize that love, as simply as Ross describes it, can do nothing but good for us and our children.

I read Eric's book to my two step-sons and step-daughter to open their eyes to a family structure that is different from theirs. By the time I was done reading the story, the kids were already "calling" who got to read it next. Once all three had the chance to read aloud, we discussed marriage equality as a family. Eric's book is a fantastic gateway to discuss a civil rights issue with children.

What a wonderfully written children's book! Eric Ross does a fantastic job showing that a wedding is a wedding no matter who it is getting married. Pushing politics aside, he tells the story of a couple planning for their big day and the excitement it generates for their nephew, Andy. The children I have read it to love going through the wedding preparations with Andy and his uncles, though they can't wait to get to the part with the bird pooping. Well done, Mr. Ross! I'm looking forward to the next one....

What questions will kids ask when their uncle wants to marry another man? As shown in My Uncle's Wedding, children want to know: "Can I have chicken nuggets?" and "Can I help pick out the cake?"

Author Eric Ross's and illustrator Tracy Greene's book "My Uncle's Wedding" reveals the normalcy and simplicity behind the weddings of same gender couples. The story is told from the perspective of the ringbearer/narrator, who excitedly helps plan for his uncle's wedding day. The young narrator leads us from the engagement through the planning and reception. The language and illustrations are clear, kid-friendly, and age appropriate.

As an uncle, my nephew was too young to remember serving as the ringbearer in my wedding, so I bought this for him.

As a gay dad, I think this book celebrates the normalcy of our everyday lives, in the spirit of "Daddy, Papa, and Me."

My Uncle's Wedding is a beautifully-written, wonderfully-illustrated book about a commonplace occurrence - a wedding - something that all families experience and enjoy. The planning of the wedding and the wedding celebration are seen through the eyes of Andy, the nephew of one of the men getting married. Andy was included in the planning of the wedding and it's fun to see his reactions to picking out flowers, tasting different kinds of cakes, buying a suit - and even bird poop! It's a book that all families will enjoy. It is also a book that shows how natural it is for two people who love each other to want to get married and spend their lives together. Bravo to Eric Ross (the author) and Tracy K Greene (the illustrator)!
