Notes From Your Bookseller

Matthew McConaughey is known around the world for a variety of admirable reasons. When his best-selling Greenlights hit book stores in 2020, McConaughey's influence and inspiration somehow reached an even higher level. Now, paired with gorgeous art from Renée Kurilla, his picture book debut Just Because will continue to spread the soulful gospel of Matthew to the youngest of readers. There's much to be gained by sitting down, taking a breath and enjoying a picture book. In fact, every child and adult should read at least one picture book a month. Why? Just Because.

The debut picture book by Academy Award-winning actor and #1 New York Times bestselling author Matthew McConaughey

Just because I’m in the race,
doesn’t mean I’m fully ready.
Just because I’m shaking,
doesn’t mean that I’m not steady.

Have you ever felt worried and excited at the same time?

Have you ever had your feelings hurt but forgiven someone anyway?

Have you ever thought there was more than one right answer to a question?

That’s because contradictions are all around us. And they make us who we are.

Filled with his trademark humor and wisdom, Academy Award–winning actor and #1 New York Times bestselling author Matthew McConaughey has crafted a soulful and irreverent collection of life lessons that empowers readers, big and small, to celebrate how we are all full of possibility.

Why? Just because.
