Mary J. Blige can sing, she can act and she can write a children’s book.

Blige and HarperCollins Publishers announced on Tuesday that Blige is penning a children’s book called Mary Can! It tells the story of a young girl who proves she can make her dreams come true. It is inspired by Blige’s experiences as a child being told she couldn’t do things.

“I want kids to know that there are no limits to what they can accomplish,” Blige said in a press release. “My wish is for 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. From start to finish, this book has been my own dream… I couldn’t be more excited to share this with the younger generation.”
