Ms. Rachel is ready to connect with her little ones in a new way.

The YouTube star, whose real name is Rachel Griffin Accurso, revealed on Good Morning America Tuesday that she will be releasing her “first-ever picture book” for “young readers and their families” in September.

"It is truly a privilege to be able to teach and connect with children not just through YouTube but also through books and the enduring magic of storytime," the social media star, 41, said in a press release, per GMA.

The new book, created in partnership with Random House Books for Young Readers, is titled Ms. Rachel and the Special Surprise!: Encouraging Speech and Learning Through Play and Music.

The book is set to continue her teachings on YouTube and TikTok — where she has garnered more than 11 million followers — which promote language development in children with speech delays. She was originally inspired to create the videos after struggling to find help for her son, who also had trouble with his speech.

She first hit it big on YouTube in 2019 with her cheery "Songs for Littles," and went on to create videos that are a 50-50 mix of classic kids' songs and original works to help kids learn communications skills.
