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.

A lovely book for any child with a family member getting married, straight or gay. Tells the story form the innocence of a child's point of view and the illustrations are fun and lively. Overall a great book that highlights the excitement of two people in love planning their wedding, cake tasting and all!

Through the eyes of a child, Eric Ross follows the process of marriage from announcing the engagement to the happy family photos. "Andy" is excited to help plan and participate in his uncle's wedding and discovers that "two uncles are better than one". Eric ignores the culture wars for a simple, sweet children's story about what two people do when they fall in love. Tracy K. Green' s artistry is a perfect complement to a story that every child should get to read.

I think Mr. Ross did a fantastic job of creating a simple yet eloquent way of speaking to children about the simplicity of the concept of two people loving each other and wanting to be together for the rest of their lives. It asks no questions about same sex marriage and stays clear of the political hoopla. What a great way for kids to know that same sex marriage is the most normal thing to do, if two people love each other. BRAVO Mr. Ross!!

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....
