Little Ash is now ready to inspire the next generation

Ash Barty’s children’s book is all ready for pre-order just three months after announcing her retirement from tennis. 

The former World No.1 shocked fans across the world when she announced on March 23 that she would be retiring from tennis.

The 25-year-old then came out to say that she will be writing a children’s book series called Little Ash, which is now ready for pre-order and set for release in July.

Ash teamed up with First Nations creatives Jasmin McGaughey and Jade Goodwin “to bring young readers this fun and exciting new illustrated series about school, sport, friendship and family”.

“I’ve been working on something special that I’m excited to share with you! Coming in July, Little Ash is a series of books for young readers aged five and up,” she wrote on Instagram. 

“Reading to my nieces and nephew is something I love to do, and seeing their little faces light up when we read a book they love is magic. 

“With First Nations writer Jasmin McGaughey and illustrator Jade Goodwin, I’ve created Little Ash to be fun and relatable for all kids.

“Supporting kids’ education is something I’m passionate about and if I can help encourage new readers that will make me very happy.

“The Little Ash series is now available to pre-order!”
