Picture Book Unboxing! Fast Asleep in a Little Village in Israel

image

It’s finally here!!!  These are my advance author copies.  The actual book is being released exactly two years from when I submitted it to Apples & Honey Press, which is almost lightning speed in the children’s-book industry.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then surely a video is worth a couple million pictures.  Here you go!


But just in case you’re the type who prefers pictures…

Here are NR & GZ, hamming it up and pulling out the first copies…

This is where I told GZ, “Feign an expression of delight!”

I think he literally has no idea what human emotions are or how they work.

Now… displaying the book:

I absolutely adore this two-page final spread:

And they let me write a little bit about why rain is such a big deal here in Israel:

There’s also a dedication to our wonderful new friends here in Israel – but I’m not telling them it’s in there.  Let them buy the book and find it for themselves! Open-mouthed smile <—evil grin

Self-published or commercially published… there is absolutely nothing so good as holding your own book in your hands—and your kids’ hands—at last!

Available for pre-order right now if you want to get it into YOUR kids’ hands as soon as possible.  I really hope you’ll like it.
