Motherhood has also inspired new work: Jewel wrote and recorded two soothing child-friendly albums _ “Lullaby” and “The Merry Goes `Round.” On Sept. 18, she’s releasing a children’s book called “That’s What I’ll Do,” which will include a CD accompaniment of a song by the same title.

“It’s a love song I wrote for my son,” she said. “It’s one I sing to him every night. It’s a creative, fanciful, whimsical way of telling him all the ways that I love him, and it’s a song I thought other parents would enjoy sharing with their children.”
