 Jewel at the 2012  Texas Book Festival

There’s no stronger bond than the love a mother has for her child. Morning, afternoon, and night, a mother and child’s day is filled with love. In That’s What I’d Do, four-time Grammy nominee Jewel celebrates her newborn son. Lyrical and lovely, this soothing lullaby, accompanied by the tender illustrations of Amy June Bates, is perfect for bedtime sharing. At the 2011 Grammys, Jewel told "to me, this is just a love story to your child. I'm really excited for moms to get to sit down and read this to their babies." This hardcover book includes a CD of the lullaby being sung aloud. Jewel is an award-winning singer, songwriter, philanthropist, painter, poet, actress, and daughter to an Alaskan cowboy singer-songwriter. She has three internationally bestselling albums. Jewel is also the author of the New York Times bestselling book of poetry A Night Without Armor and a chronicle of her life as a traveling musician, Chasing Down the Dawn: Life on the Road.. She lives on a working ranch near Stephenville, Texas with her husband, World Champion bull-riding superstar, Ty Murray, and her son, Kase.
