Just released is My Uncle’s Wedding, a new book intended to explain same-sex marriage to kids ages 4-8 who may be invited to attend the ceremony.
“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,” said Molly McKay, National Media Director for Marriage Equality USA. “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.” The message in the book is one of love and equality, but it is handled well and without being preachy. The protagonist observes the proceedings with childlike innocence, simply accepting that his two uncles love each other and should celebrate that. It’s no different from any other wedding. And at no point does the story feel heavy-handed.
My Uncle’s Wedding is now on sale via Amazon and the above link. Get ready for the wingers to start screaming about “indoctrination.”
