Grand Rapids, MI – October 6, 2022 – The Zonderkidz title, I’m So Glad You Were Born authored by FOX & Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt received #1 status on the New York Times bestseller list for Children’s Picture Books for the October 16 issue. The book released September 27, 2022 with Earhardt appearing on numerous FOX programs, doing a full national media tour and personal appearances in several cities around the country such as Nashville, Salt Lake City, and Ponte Vedra, Florida.

“Our team at Zonderkidz is elated about this #1 status for this special book,” says Zonderkidz Vice President and Publisher Megan Dobson. “Ainsley’s heart for sharing this important and needed message with children has shown since our first conversations together, and it’s been amazing to watch this book already reach so many children and their families. We’re so grateful for Ainsley and the teams at FOX and CAA for helping us inspire young lives and get the word out about I’m So Glad You Were Born. We’re excited to keep on sharing this message of love to even more children, celebrating who they are and the plans God has for them.”

Earhardt shared the bestseller news with viewers of FOX & Friends this morning and on her Instagram account: https://www.instagram.com/p/CjX2IisDHNL/

Dedicated to her daughter Hayden, this book is meant to be shared with children to remind them that they were created to be extraordinary and treasured.

“My mother always told us on our birthdays each year how glad she was that we were born—and now I love saying that to my daughter, Hayden,” said Earhardt, during her book announcement this spring. “This book celebrates all the reasons we are so glad our children are born and how special they are. It reminds children they have a purpose, there’s a plan for their life, that God loves them and they are worthy of having a wonderful life. This book is about noticing the traits that make a child special, and I hope it helps parents, grandparents, and caregivers to slow down and take the time to tell the children in their lives how grateful and appreciative they are for all the special things that make a child who they are.”

Ainsley Earhardt is now the author of four New York Times bestsellers, including three #1 children’s picture book bestsellers as of October 2022. She hosts a Bible Study with Fox Nation and has over one million followers on her social media platforms combined. Earhardt has been a co-host on the popular FOX & Friends morning show since 2016.
