Are they your grandchildren?

Ever since my book came out, I have been flooded (already!) with many comments, feedback accolades, and blessings. And then come the questions, which I am happy and excited to answer. However, there is one question that has baffled me from the beginning (all of 3 days ago!).

“Are these kids on the cover your grandchildren?”

Huh?

First off, the answer is no. The kids are  complete strangers. Adorable, charming and lively. But strangers to me. In fact, I give credit for the cover design – or “jacket design” as it is called — to the graphic artist assigned by the publisher. And as far as I know, no one asked me for my family photo album to use for the cover.

True, it must have been hard to find children as endearing as my own children grandchildren are – but they tried – and I think they succeeded.

The fact is that the children on the cover could be anyone’s children or grandchildren. They could be yours, mine, or that of the neighbors down the block. They are  every bit as adorable as every single mother and  grandmother out there feels about her own children and grandkids.

These children are a sample of wonderful kids who are celebrating the birth of a new Grandmother.

These kids seem to be happy, well-adjusted  kids. And that, as parents and grandparents is what we wish for the next generation.

So, my question to my readers of my book is “Are these kids YOUR children or grandchildren?”  Because if so, then the graphic artist has achieved her purpose.

Have nachas!
