A delightful guide to the joys and responsibilities of being an uncle

There are more uncles than there are parents, more nieces and nephews than there are daughters and sons. Now, in The Uncle Book, Cogan has written a charming and instructive guide to handling the joys and responsibilities of being an uncle. Organized in an easy-to-browse format, it includes helpful sections on everything from changing diapers to childproofing your apartment, profiles of celebrity uncles, plus the ins and outs of planning birthday parties, playing Nintendo, and much more.

With its wealth of information, insights and expert advice, The Uncle Book will lend support to nervous, new uncles as well as inspire experienced ones, and help to strengthen relationships between children and their uncles everywhere.
