Bobby has written his very first picture book perfect for children and anyone young at heart.

The book is called STANLEY THE DOG: THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL.    Bobby was inspired by his own bulldog Stanley.  The book follows Stanley on his first day of school adventures.

“I’m pumped to finally share more about my upcoming children’s book,” Bones said. “It follows our bulldog Stanley as he navigates his first day of school jitters and being himself in a brand-new situation. True to real-life Stanley, there are plenty of antics along the way! My hope through writing this book is that it will serve as reminder to kids that it’s okay to not fit in with the crowd; your differences are what make you so special.”

Bobby Bones', STANLEY THE DOG: THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL is available for purchase starting June 14th. As a part of the book going on sale, Bobby will be making a donation to Wags & Walks Nashville.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with Bobby and Stanley on their first-ever children’s picture book,” said David Linker, Executive Editor at HarperCollins Publishers. “I think kids will find Stanley’s story about surviving and thriving during his first day of school both heartwarmingly hilarious and doggedly reassuring. I can’t wait to share their story with the world.”

We are excited for Bobby Bones and all his new readers.  This book will help them get through their own first day of school jitters. You can purchase your copy here or:
