Taylor Swift is no stranger to topping the music charts, but how about the book charts? A new kid’s book about the singer hit No. 1 on Amazon’s bestselling books category and No. 8 on the tally of nonfiction releases.
Taylor Swift: A Little Golden Biography, released Tuesday (May 2), follows Swift’s journey from aspiring recording artists to certified superstar. The picture book was written by Wendy Loggia and illustrated by Elisa Chavarri.
According to the description, the book was written to “help your little one dream big,” plus it makes a fun activity for Swifities who have kids (also a cute Mother’s Day gift for Swiftie moms with younger kids).
“One of Taylor’s biggest strengths is storytelling – her songs tell stories that many people can relate to,” reads an excerpt from the book. “Taylor wrote all the songs on her third album, Speak Now. Listening to a Taylor Swift album is like hearing a diary being sung out loud!”
Despite being written for children, older Swifties (with and without kids) can also enjoy the book’s inspirational story, adorable illustrations, and nods to Swift’s loyal fan base.
“Taylor also loves sharing things with her fans,” reads another passage from the book. “They know that her lucky number is thirteen. She often hides clues and symbols in her music and videos. For a few of her albums, she surprised special groups of fans by inviting them to secret parties to listen to the album before anyone else. They got to hang out at her house, meet her family – and even bake cookies together!”
Taylor Swift: A Little Golden Biography is part of the Little Golden biography series, which features kid’s books on other stars like Willie Nelson, Beyoncé, Dolly Parton, The Beetles, Tony Bennett, and Bruce Springstein.
As for Swift, the “Anti-Hero” singer is currently on the North American leg of her Eras Tour, which heads into Nashville on Friday, May 5.
