‘Uncle Bobby’s Wedding’ by Sarah S Brannen & Lucia Soto is a charming story about a little girl whose Uncle Bobby is getting married. Chloe fears that she will lose her favourite uncle as he will be spending too much time with his new husband. In the end she gains another uncle and they all have great fun together. We like this book as it gives lots of opportunity for discussion around diversity, Theory of Mind (how is Chloe feeling? When have you felt like that?), metaphors (“Chloe was as happy as a ladybird”) and story retell (What happened at the beginning? In the middle? At the end?).
