Jewel’s debut children’s book, ‘That’s What I’d Do,’ was inspired by a song about her 15-month-old son Kase, and the talented singer-songwriter said she hopes it sparks his imagination! How sweet!
Jewel has added children’s book author to her impressive resume that includes singer, songwriter, actress, wife, to husband Ty Murray, and mom to their son Kase, 15 months. The 38-year-old said one song in particular — That’s What I’d Do – from her second children’s album, The Merry Goes ‘Round, stuck out and had to be more than just a track on an album.
“I was writing the lyrics [to the song That's What I'd Do] out by hand in a journal and seeing the words written without a melody just instantly struck me,” Jewel told Celebuzz.com. “I knew I wanted to make a children’s book out of it.”
The book became more than just a beautiful homage to her son — it’s a memorable gift he’ll always cherish!
“I wanted to have it as a love note for my son so he would know how much I loved him, but also hopefully inspire him with poetic imagery to really spark his imagination. It was really at quite a young age that I was inspired and intrigued by words. Hopefully we’ll share a love of words.”
That’s so sweet! As far as expanding her brood, Jewel says she doesn’t know if she and her husband will be adding any more children any time soon.
“I’m sure [Kase] would want a sibling, but I’m perfectly happy with one [child].”
