WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Two young Piedmont brothers have published a children’s book, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.

Brothers Jackson Cates, 9, and Zachary, 12, co-authored “What If?” a book that creatively answers questions the boys have asked growing up.

“Jackson once told me he heard that Heaven has streets of gold and if that’s true, would the streets be white gold or yellow gold,” said Linda Felker, their grandmother. “Basically, it takes the things children, with their wild imaginations, say and expounds upon them.”

The book was published by Second Wind Publishing in Kernersville and will be released in late May.

“The book is pure, it’s truth and it’s the reality of being a kid,” Felker said. “Although it’s targeted for children, the message is there for all ages.”

Felker assisted them with the book and said the idea was prompted by a journal she has kept over the years of all the thought-provoking questions her only two grandsons have asked.
