Cooper and Mommy

One Year Old .

News Update:  It's a Girl!

Nugget was born on April 22, 2015

7 lbs. 6 oz.

Her name is Cooper Rae Space. 

The illustrations were done by Celine  Valentin.

The slideshow here is a sample of a few of the illustrations in the book. She did a great job matching the actual photos of Nugget's family. 

What is Family is the story of my yet-to-be born 10th grandchild. We don't know yet if the baby is a boy or a girl. My daughter calls him or her Nugget. I think it will stick.  

This is Nugget's travels all over the United States asking family members, What is family? These are exact quotes from all of them, from the youngest, five-year-old Amber to the older - that's me, Grandma Jo.

I hope you enjoy Nugget's journey.   

What is Family?  is available on, on Banes and and on Create Space.  By using the link below, the proceeds will go to Nugget's piggy bank.
