Actress Garcelle Beauvais is planning to share life lessons through a series of children’s books.

The “Franklin & Bash” star has an agreement with Stranger Comics for three books that will “address identity issues relevant to many children today.”

The series will be called “I Am.” The first book, I Am Mixed with co-author Sebastian A. Jones, is coming out this fall. It will tell of a brother and sister and their mixed ethnicities.

A second book will be about children of divorce. Beauvais’ parents were divorced, and she has been married twice.

The Haiti-born actress and mother of three is known for her roles on “The Jamie Foxx Show” and “NYPD Blue.”
