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.

Are Jews an "underrepresented community" in children’s publishing?

I applied for a writing award yesterday. I'm not going to get it, but that's not what I wanted to share with you. Here's what I wanted to share. This box:   I stared at this box for a long, long time. And then I decided not to check it. Even though I believe people like me truly are underrepresented, we probably wouldn’t fit the definition in other people's minds. Why? Well, because we're European. Because we are white. Because as everybody knows, Jews control the media. (do we???) If anything, some people say, Jews are over -represented in publishing. And yet. Some definitions are careful not to include people like me.
