Joanna Gaines has announced she will be publishing a second children’s book, inspired by her own five kids!
The Fixer Upper star announced the news on her Magnolia blog, revealing “The World Needs Who You Were Made to Be” will hit shelves on November 10, 2020.
“I wanted my new children’s book to say the very thing that I needed to hear as a kid, and that I want my kids to hear and know deep in their bones, and that I hope your kids will hear and believe, too: The world needs who you were made to be—with all of the kindness and strength and unique qualities that make you who you are,” the 42-year-old shared on Instagram.
“The idea for this book was inspired by my kids. One of my greatest joys as a mother has been to watch them grow and change and become who they are,” Joanna shared on her blog. “And, between the five of them, they are all becoming very different people—in their likes and dislikes, in how they approach situations, in how they solve problems, and simply in how they go about their day to day. My hope is for each of them to know, deep in their bones, that who they are is good, and that the differences that they see in each other and in themselves are to be celebrated.”
“I hope that as you read it to your kids, it inspires and spurs them on to know and love who they are for all of the beautiful and unique and magical gifts they have to offer to the world,” Joanna told fans. “And I hope that it does the same for you, that it encourages you to love yourself—because I mean it when I say that the world needs who you were made to be.”
