Thompson Square is a seasoned country duo with two top five albums, certified gold and 2X platinum singles and continue to rack up multiple Grammy nominations and three trophies as Vocal Duo of the Year from the ACM and CMA Awards.

After welcoming the birth of their son, Cooper, in 2016, husband-and-wife team of Shawna and Keifer Thompson released their third studio album, Masterpiece.

Maintaining a successful music career seems challenging enough, but that isn’t stopping the Thompson power couple from getting their feet wet in something new. The two are now channeling their song writing abilities to help them create lyrical children’s literature, inspired by their son.

“We wrote a CHILDREN’S BOOK y’all!!! Time to Get Dressed is so special to us,” exclaimed Shawna. “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.”

Playful, melodic and colorfully illustrated, the picture book, Time to Get Dressed, is a way to teach children how to get ready for their day. The sing-song story line and accompanying tune is a catchy and easy way to help children learn and retain what they just read.

The book is set for official release November 13 and you can pre-order the book here. Those who pre-order will receive a signed copy of the lovable lesson book – plus a digital-download code for the bouncy “Time To Get Dressed” companion song, sung by the duo.
