Introducing my new crossover picture book:

I’m pleased to announce the publication of my new picture book: “Love Is” – my first crossover picture book, and my sixth multicultural concept book.
A crossover book is intended for both children and adults. This book also crosses over another line, in that it functions as both a picture book and a greeting card booklet. Just 7″x5″, this endearing little book fits into a greeting card envelope, which comes with the book. It may be mailed in the U.S. with just two first class postage stamps!
The book takes the form of a rhyming poem all about the many forms of love, with an emphasis on the kinds of love children relate to most. The illustrations tell the story, helping children to recognize what love is and how it manifests in our relationships with friends and family, elders and caregivers, coworkers, pets, etc.
For adults, this whimsical little book makes a great gift for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or any occasion for love!
I wrote the poem about ten years ago, beginning with the idea that the word “love” is both a verb and a noun. But no publisher was willing to take on a crossover book, so I finally decided to publish the book myself. Blue Thread Books, an imprint of Jewish Currents magazine, will help to promote it.
I hope you will consider purchasing this little book as a gift for your loved ones – of any age! It costs just $8.95 in my webstore, shipping included. It comes with a greeting card envelope, and if you wish, I can inscribe the book to your recipient and mail it as a gift for you. Just follow the instructions on the order form. The book has an inscription box at the beginning if you prefer to fill that out yourself. Spread the love!
