How exciting! Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Pierce Bush are two of the newest children’s book authors on the block. The Today show host, 37, took to Instagram on Tuesday, February 12 to share the news that she and her twin Barbara, also 37, have written a cute new book for kids about sisters.
“Barbara and I wrote a love letter to sisterhood, based on watching my girls’ love, our sisterhood and all of our friends who have made our lives sweeter than we ever dreamed!” Jenna captioned a photo of the book’s cover. “Sisters First, our new children’s book is out 11/12. Link in bio to pre-order now!” Take a look at Jenna and Barbara’s new book below!
Following the special social media announcement, fans of the former first daughters couldn’t wait to comment about how excited they are for the new book. “Can’t wait to get your book for my girls,” one person wrote in the post’s comments section. “I do not have a sister by blood, BUT, I have three adult daughters AND six grand-daughters … I think I will be purchasing a few books for my sweethearts,” another wrote.
This isn’t the first time the sisters have come together to write a book. Their first joint memoir, also titled Sisters First, was published in fall 2017 and recounted Jenna and Barbara’s childhood, their time in the spotlight and the sisterly bond that helped them through it all.
The book includes stories about everything from their public debut when their late grandfather, President George H.W. Bush, was inaugurated in 1989 and their father George W. Bush‘s own swearing into office 12 years later to their unconventional college days being followed by Secret Service and paparazzi. It also featured a foreword by their mother, Laura Bush.
“We’ve always felt lucky that we had each other to walk side-by-side as sisters through the extraordinary circumstances of our ordinary lives,” Jenna and Barbara told People while promoting their memoir. “We are so excited to share the stories that mean the most to us — from the ones that made us laugh to those that shaped us the most — and we hope to make Sisters First an entertaining read that will also give readers a more nuanced look behind the headlines.”
Besides publishing these two books with her sister, Jenna also wrote the New York Times bestseller Ana’s Story: A Journey of Hope and cowrote two children’s books with her mother, Laura. We can’t wait until Jenna and Barbara’s adorable new children’s book comes out!
