24/8 Book Club

First Lady Laura Bush and her daughter Jenna

Filed under: 24/8 Musings

have collaborated on their first children’s book that was released on Tuesday, April 22nd.  Both of these women have been teachers and they hope they have given children a book they will love to read.

They appeared on the Today show on Tuesday and said it was important to them to write a book that boys would want to read.  So it should be no surprise that the main character is a boy named Tyrone.  A real life student that was in the First Lady’s class years ago was the inspiration for Tyrone.  Tyrone is mischievous and doesn’t like to read but then something happens. 

Be sure to check out the book tour scheduled for the next two weeks, they just might be coming to your town, http://www.harpercollinschildrens.com/harperchildrens/parents/gamesandcontests/features/readallaboutit/
