Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon to Publish Holiday Children's Book
It’s only January, but Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are already looking forward to Christmas. The superstar couple and their twins will release a holiday children’s picture book this fall.
Scholastic has announced plans to publish Roc and Roe’s Twelve Days of Christmas, a festive picture book starring the couple’s three-year-old twins Roc (Moroccan) and Roe (Monroe).
The book, aimed at readers ages 3 and up and illustrated by New York Times bestselling artist AG Ford, follows Roc and Roe as they put their own unique spin on the Christmas carol “The Twelve Days of Christmas.”
“We are so excited to work with the Scholastic team on our Roc and Roe picture book and we can’t wait until this holiday season!” said Mariah and Nick.
“It’s been such a fun and collaborative process and we are thrilled to be working with Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey on this exciting project,” added Ken Geist, Vice President and Editorial Director, Scholastic Press Picture Books. “Roc and Roe’s Twelve Days of Christmas is the perfect book to read with your little ones—an adorable spin on a classic tale, sprinkled with humor and heart.”
Mariah’s love for the holidays is no secret. She has released two Christmas albums and has the best-selling holiday single with her 1994 hit “All I Want for Christmas Is You.”
Her album The Art of Letting Go is due in late spring.
