Naomi Osaka promoted her new children’s book by reading it to her dog, which he called her “firstborn.” “Reading my first book to my firstborn lol. So I just got to hold a final copy of my new book and I can’t wait for you all to read it!
It’s important to support preorders so If you’d like to preorder and get a signed bookplate from me, follow the link in my bio. Also if you want to support independent businesses, Bookshop and IndieBound are a great way to do so,” Osaka captioned her latest Instagram post.
Here is the description of Osaka’s new children’s book as found on the Harper Collins official website: “From tennis champion and advocate Naomi Osaka comes a picture book celebrating all the ways that champs play.
Whether they are practicing patience as they swim, or teamwork as they dribble a ball, the girls at Play Academy know that playing a sport is super fun!
Osaka rivals Serena Williams in children’s book industry
Serena Williams’ tennis competitors remained even after she retired from professional tennis.
Naomi Osaka released a children’s book shortly after Serena did. “So excited to finally announce the release of my first children’s book, The Way Champs Play. It’s the first publishing project under my production company @hanakuma.
I hope this book inspires kids to chase their dreams and encourages them to believe they can do anything they put their minds to. This book holds an extra special place in my heart as a portion of the proceeds will go to my foundation @playacademynaomi which works to support young girls in sport.
It officially releases on December 6th, but you can pre-order today at the link in my bio and get a signed bookplate to put inside your book!” wrote Naomi Osaka on Instagram in October. Serena Williams’ recently launched children’s book is called The Adventures of Qai Qai.
