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.

Format: Paperback
This is a kid's book about a wedding, a gay wedding. What is so great about this book is that it is not a political agenda disguised as a kids book, instead It's actually for kids! Told from the point of view of a kid who is excited because his uncle is getting married. I work at a book store and I put this book on display, I thought it would sell to educators who wanted to include this book in their libraries. Instead I sold the book to folks who were going to give the book to their kids who were going to be involved in their uncles/aunts weddings. One couple bought it for their nephew who had participated in their wedding. I found this book to be very charming. I loved it for being such a gentle story focused on the excitement surrounding two people in love who are getting married. In this world where gay marriage is a hot topic, it's hard to avoid hearing all the negative stuff, the hateful stuff against gay marriage and the emotional, intense stuff that comes as gay people fight for equal rights. Somehow "My Uncle's Wedding" is an honest and real book while completely avoiding the negativity of the politics surrounding the issue of gay marriage, focusing on the positivity of two people in love getting married.

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)!

Eric Ross has written an utterly charming book the summarizes very simply what marriage equality is all about. "when two people really love each other, and decide they want to spend the rest of their lives together, they get married." He also very cleverly and rightly treats the wedding of two men getting married each other like any other wedding: there are flowers to choose, cake to taste, presents and dancing. To a child it is as simple as that.

The book succinctly and engagingly encapsulates in a positive way my counter argument to those who fret about "the children" on the subject of marriage equality. I am looking forward to more books on the subject from this author.
