Now that there’s an upcoming Joanna Gaines children’s book, we can officially say the mom of five is beyond busy. In the last 12 months, Gaines said goodbye to her longtime show, Fixer Upper, welcomed her fifth child, Crew, continues to wow us with her baking skills on Instagram—and apparently has been writing her first children’s book, We Are the Gardeners.
The beautiful new book is co-written by JoJo and her kid and shares the story of the family’s adventure in starting their own garden. Illustrated in gorgeous watercolors by Julianna Swaney, readers young and old can follow the gang as they navigate failures, mischievous bunnies who eat everything and learn that starting a garden can be a rewarding challenge.

Today’s the day! We get to finally share this project the kids and I have been working on! ⠀ ⠀ We wrote this children’s book together to tell the story of our journey in the garden – a story of trying and failing and trying again and never giving up. We hope it inspires you and your little ones to get outside, get your hands dirty, and grow something great! ⠀ ⠀ We Are The Gardeners comes out March 26th! Pre-order a copy at the link in profile.
Anyone who has seen an episode of Fixer Upper has probably glimpsed Gaines in her greenhouse or helping her kids with planting, so it’s no surprise she chose to share her passion through a book. It’s her hope that she can inspire young kids to develop a love of gardening, just as she’s done with her own children.
We are loving the sneak peak Gaines shared on her Instagram. Head to Amazon to pre-order your copy of We Are the Gardeners, just in time for its Mar. 26, 2019 release date.
