Bobby and Jamie are getting married, but Bobby's niece Chloe is worried that she won't be his favorite person anymore. Will Uncle Bobby still think she is special?

Sarah Brannen's warm story is set in an alternative family as Uncle Bobby marries his boyfriend. Uncle Bobby's Wedding embraces Bobby's relationship with Jamie, but keeps its focus where it truly belongs: on an uncle and niece's love for each other.

Beautifully told and charmingly illustrated, this simple yet moving story begs to be read time and again.

This was the youngest homosexual education book I could find for children. It is about two male hamsters who are getting married. A gentle introduction to a controversial issue.

This is an anthropomorphic story about guinea pigs. This story is about Chloe and her favorite uncle, Bobby, who is getting married to his boyfriend Jamie. Chloe is worried that when they get married her uncle will not spend time with her and becomes jealous of his husband. However, Chloe eventually learns that they can have fun together- Chloe, Jamie, and her Uncle Bobby.
