"As one of the few children's books that address LGBT issues, it serves as a conduit by which to bolster understanding in our community. The book plays a vital role in creating a brighter future for our lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth and their parents." CA State Senator Mark Leno
"It is a parent's responsibility to teach their children tolerance of all people, and I have yet to find a better tool to begin that lesson than My Uncle's Wedding." Alan Chin - Writer, Examiner.com
"It's never too early to teach our nation's children about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender equality. And 'My Uncle's Wedding' does just that, showing children that marriage is about love and family. Eric Ross perfectly demonstrates that LGBT families share the same values as any other family, and his book will undoubtedly educate and inform generations to come about the freedom to marry. Bravo!" Kate Kendell, Esq. - Executive Director, National Center for Lesbian Rights
"This children's book is the perfect gift for any child who loves a good story and especially children with gay people in their family. The author approaches the subject of same-sex marriage with a child's sensitivity and sensibility, and the beautiful illustrations are sure to be enjoyed by kids and parents alike." Molly McKay - National Media Director, Marriage Equality USA
"My Uncle's Wedding" celebrates love from a young nephew's point of view of his favorite uncle's beautiful wedding.

Del Shores - Writer/Director, Sordid Lives
"Everyone agrees that children should learn in an "age-appropriate" manner, but it's also important that they learn tolerance and respect for everyone.

I had high hopes for this book because it combines two things that I hold dear: reading to children, and equality for all in terms of marriage. That said, this book disappoints. It's poorly written and comes off more as a diatribe than a story. The smug, superior tone is off-putting, and the story itself is clunky and disjointed.
