Emme's book is out in September and is available in English and Spanish

Emme's book has been published by Random House, and in a statement, she said: "In school, I learned about sloths and how they're facing extinction, so I began to pray for them in my nightly prayers.

"I wrote this book to help raise money to save sloths while also teaching other children how we can pray and ask for help, two things that bring me a lot of comfort."

The book has been published in both English and Spanish.

It was in the pipeline for several years, and Emme was first pictured with a mock cover of her book in 2018.

The Hustlers actress shared a picture on Instagram of her daughter, then ten, in the back of a limo on her way to a meeting with a publisher in New York. J-Lo wrote: "It's a very special day. Me and Emme are off to our first book publishers meeting for an idea Emme had for a book."
