Hi all!

My 5 year old is starting to ask questions about his uncles (my BIL and his partner - as an aside they live in California so it looks like we are going to be attending a wedding - Yay!!!)

Up until now I've mostly talked about how every family is special, not matter the shape or size. etc etc.  You know kids though, every answer brings up another "why."   I could really use some suggestions for any childrens books that you think might be helpful.

TIA!  Cassandra

Cassandra, look a little farther down to my post about the children's books. A lot of people gave some really great answers. =)
