Maren Morris Announces Her Debut Children’s Book

The list of celebrities with their own children’s books is getting longer by the day, and Maren Morris just joined the pack. The country singer shared the cover of her upcoming picture book Addie Ant Goes on an Adventure, set to come out in spring next year.

Morris worked closely alongside co-writer and educator Karina Argow to develop this story, which tells the delightful tale of one little ant’s journey for independence. Kelly Anne Dalton was in charge of illustrating Addie Ant Goes on an Adventure, set to be published by Chronicle Chroma on April 9, 2024.

Since writing happens to be one of her biggest passions, it was just a matter of time before Morris published a book of her own. The inspiration for Addie Ant Goes on an Adventure came while she was reading to her older son Hayes, and she decided to develop a book of her own, hoping children and adults would enjoy it in equal measure.

“Inspiring others through words and lyrics is a lifelong passion of mine. To be able to give back to young learners in this way, to instill in them at a young age a deep love for the world around them gives me great hope for the future,” she said in a statement.
