Alicia Keys Launches New Children’s Book: Blue Moon
Our favorite expectant mama, Grammy Award-winning recording artist Alicia Keys just launched a new and inspiring book- just in time for the holidays. From the interactive story telling app “The Journals of Mama Mae and LeeLee“, Blue Moon is an inspirational and magical tale of discovery inspired by Alicia’s childhood relationship with her own grandmother. “Mama Mae is a character that is partially born from the spirit of my Nana, a very special woman who instilled in me all of the values that still guide my path to this day” says Keys.
Blue Moon introduces readers to youthful and imaginative and whimsical LeeLee, who just moved to the big city, and her magical grandmother, Mama Mae. To help LeeLee adjust to her new home, Mama Mae tells her the story of Abey, a young Native American girl from the 17th century, and her adventurous yet magical evening when she too wasn’t sure of her surroundings. She becomes separated from her family, but harnesses the light of the moon and the power of music to find her way home. Moving to the big city can be scary, but LeeLee discovers that she can make new friends anywhere through Mama Mae’s powerful telling of Blue Moon.
The story explores themes of self confidence, faith, intergenerational relationships, change, and personal growth- all excellent portals to enrich the beautifully illustrated story. “The Journals of Mama Mae & LeeLee is a project that is very dear to my heart and incredibly important to me” says Keys. We love it and you will too.
A perfect gift for the holiday season and Mama Glow Approved!
