Mary J. Blige To Release ‘Mary Can!’ Children’s Book

On Wednesday (11.16,) Mary J. Blige took to social media to announce the imminent release of ‘Mary Can!,’ her very first children’s picture book.

Published by HarperCollins and scheduled for release on 3.28.23, the Grammy and Emmy award-winning entertainer penned the book with the Ashleigh Corrin illustrations.

Along with the book’s cover art, Mary captioned her Instagram post:

“Mary Can! is an inspirational and motivating story about a young girl who proves that anyone can make their dreams come true if they just believe in themselves. It’s such a personal story for me, based off my own experiences as a child and even as an adult.” ”I was so used to people telling me ‘no’ and that I ‘couldn’t’ which only motivated me more. My hope with this book is that it instils in kids from an early age that they can do anything they aspire to do.” “There are no limits to what they can accomplish!”

In a recent interview with People, Blige said she wants “kids to know that there are no limits to what they can accomplish” and “my nieces and nephews to feel they can achieve anything they imagine”. “Growing up, I was constantly told that my dreams were too big, too bold, and too far out of reach. I think we need to reinforce that nothing is impossible.”
