Grammy-nominated singer Jewel has inked a deal to publish her first picture book. Paula Wiseman Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing, will release That’s What I’d Do and its companion CD on September 18th.
Publisher Jon Anderson negotiated the deal with Williams & Connolly’s Robert Barnett. Paula Wiseman will edit this project. Artist Amy June Bates will serve as the illustrator.
Jewel drew inspiration for this work from a song she wrote/recorded that shares the same name as her forthcoming book. She explained in the release: “I love to sing to my son, Kase, and I hope my first children’s book, That’s What I’d Do, will be shared with new babies in the same way. All children need the joy of music in their lives.”
