Donovan's two moms are getting married, and he can't wait for the celebration to begin. After all, as ringbearer, he has a very important job to do. Any boy or girl with same-sex parents—or who knows a same-sex couple—will appreciate this picture book about love, family, and marriage.  The story captures the joy and excitement of a wedding day while the illustrations show the happy occasion from a child's point of view.

Industry Reviews

Review, School Library Journal, April 1, 2011:
"As in Newman's Mommy, Momma and Me (Tricycle, 2009), this book broaches a controversial issue in an appealingly nonthreatening way."

Review, Kirkus Reviews, March 1, 2011:
"Centered on the child's experience and refreshingly eschewing reference to controversy, the book emerges as a celebration of not only Mommy's and Mama's mutual love but progress toward equal marriage rights for same-sex couples."
