Becoming parents has had a major impact on Thompson Square’s creativity as the country duo have revealed the upcoming release of their first children’s book, “Time To Get Dressed.” Written by Keifer and Shawna Thompson and illustrated by Ana Patankar, the book features a sing-along storyline that is meant to teach children how to get ready for their day. The story was inspired by the duo’s two-year-old son, Cooper.
“We wrote a CHILDREN’S BOOK y’all!!! TIME TO GET DRESSED is so special to us,” Shawna said in a statment. “It started out as a song Keifer would sing to Cooper and has evolved into a book everyone can read to their kiddos! We’re thrilled to be able to share a part of our family with yours.”
The book will be available through Amazon and the band’s website on Nov. 13. Fans can pre-order the book beginning today (Oct. 29) via thompsonsquare.com. The book is $9.99 and those who pre-order “Time To Get Dressed” will receive an autographed copy of the book plus a digital download code for the “Time To Get Dressed” song, which is sung by Thompson Square.

In addition to the book’s pre-order, Thompson Square will be on hand to sign the book in person after their upcoming performance at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville on Nov. 13.
Thompson Square welcomed their first child, Cooper, in 2016. Earlier this year, they released their third studio album “Masterpiece.” Their first independent project, the album was produced by the duo with Grammy Award-winning producer Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift), Dann Huff (Keith Urban) and Ilya Toshinskiy.
