Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Bush's newest children's book, "The Superpower Sisterhood," is here! This release marks the second picture book the two have co-authored, following "Sisters First," released in 2019.
"It’s so much about our mom, really, who was an only child," Jenna shared with Savannah Guthrie on TODAY. "And she said her first memory was looking at a hospital and wishing she had a baby brother. And so this is about that, it’s about where we find sisterhood."
While talking to Savannah, Jenna also shared that the book is an example of how sisterhood is about more than just family — it exists between two of their own daughters, Mila Hager, 9, and Vale Guthrie, 7.
"I actually think of our daughters. Vale doesn’t have a sister, but her sister is so much Mila Hager," Jenna said. "And this book is about looking in our friends and seeing their superpowers and their regular powers."
The story centers around Emma, a young girl who, as the only kid on her block, feels lonely. That is, until two different sets of sisters move onto her street. Soon enough, the girls band together to form a sisterhood that can best be described as magical. When they put their heads together, they learn that their individual talents shine even brighter together — almost like a special kind of superpower.
With this knowledge, they realize that anything is possible when they're side by side — including keeping their archenemy, Ms. Wigglestoot, from discovering their special secret.
It's a sweet story of friendship, sisterhood and the amazing things that can happen when the two merge together.
"The Superpower Sisterhood," marks Jenna's third children's book release. In 2016, Jenna and her mom, Laura Bush, published a children's book of their own, "Our Great Big Backyard," which tells the story of a young girl on a family road trip to see the National Parks.
