To be fair, what celeb hasn’t written a childrens book.  They seem like they’re easy to write, but I imagine that kids book by Madonna is stacked on the discount rack.

But Serena Williams is a hands on mom who felt she had a story to share with kids and who’s going to turn her down?

On Thursday, the tennis star announced that she’s releasing her first children’s book, The Adventures of Qai Qai, named for her daughters doll.

“Storytime is such an important pillar of our bedtime routine, like so many others around the world,” Williams, 40, said in a statement about reading with her 4-year-old daughter Olympia, whom she shares with husband Alexis Ohanian, 38.

“This book is dedicated to all little girls,” Williams writes in the picture book’s dedication. “Let this book be a constant reminder that you can do anything you put your mind to. Imagine it, believe it, do it.”

The Adventures of Qai Qai will be released in September 2022.
