“It was an honor to work with Nickelodeon to write this story since education is a cause dear to my heart,” Shakira said at a press release from publishing firm Grupo Editorial Norma, which published the book.

Revenue from the book, a hard cover edition, with gorgeous illustrations by Kellee Riley and Kuni Tomita, will be donated to the “Pies Descalzos” foundation, Shakira’s non-profit organization whose mission is to make sure children receive an education since they’re toddlers. Image

“The children from all over the world need to know that through knowledge and education, one can embark on great adventures.” Said Shakira of her book, labeled as “An Inspiration” by Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton.

“World School Day Adventure” is available on Amazon for $11.50.
