Diane Kruger Shared the Heartwarming Moment She Read Her New Children’s Book to Her Daughter & Her Reaction is Unexpected

·2 min read

One of the most magical feelings in the world is when you teach your child to read, to see their eyes light up when you engross them in the world of reading. It’s something incredible stultifying when you are able to read a children’s book you wrote to your child. Only a few of the population can say they’ve done this, and we can only imagine how incredible that moment may be. The newest member of this little group to be able to do so is none other than Diane Kruger.

On Sept 16, Kruger uploaded rare pictures of her and her daughter Nova, but these photos are a little more special because it’s of Kruger reading her children’s book to Nova. She uploaded the photos with the caption, “Reading „A Name from the Sky“ to my daughter for the first time ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Semi successful hahaha, she didn’t like the red shoes she is wearing in the end 💆‍♀️ OCT 25 in the US and GERMANY (Dein Name).”
