HGTV's Joanna Gaines to Release Children's Book

According to The Hollywood Reporter, HGTV's FIXER UPPER star Joanna Gaines announced Monday that she will release a new children's book, co-authored by her own children.

"Today's the day! We get to finally share this project the kids and I have been working on," Gaines revealed on her social media. "We wrote this children's book together to tell the story of our journey in the garden - a story of trying and failing and trying again and never giving up."

In We Are the Gardeners, Gaines and her children - sons Duke, 9; Drake, 13; and daughters Emmie Kay, 8, and Ella Rose, 12 - chronicle the adventures of starting their own family garden. Whether sharing the tales of their failed endeavors to comically taking on the bunnies that eat everything, the Gaines family ultimately outlines how to grow a successful garden.

"The garden has always been a place that inspires me. There's something about digging deep into fresh soil or watching new life burst from what was not long ago just a tiny SEED that reinforces what a gift life is," Gaines said. "I think that's part of why my kids have come to love spending time in the garden just as much as I do."

Gaines said that gardening has taught her children the value of hard work: "It can be a great teacher if we pause long enough to notice all there is to learn. Where every day can be a lesson in hard work, and sometimes even in failure, but where there's also growth worth celebrating. This book is our way of sharing what the garden means to us, and the many adventures we've had along the way!"

"Joanna's creativity has resulted in a gorgeous and splendid book," said Laura Minchew, senior vp and publisher of Tommy Nelson Children's Books. "Families will delight in reading the story together, and create happy memories by starting their own gardens. What fun for children to discover their green thumbs as a result of reading We Are the Gardeners!"

The book includes watercolor illustrations from Julianna Swaney.

We Are the Gardeners will be released March 26 and is available now for preorder.
