The first wife of President Donald Trump is writing a new book about raising her three children, Donald Jr., Eric and Ivanka.

In Raising Trump, which the publisher describes as a “non-partisan, non-political” memoir, Ivana Trump reflects on the “life lessons” she taught her sons and daughter as they were growing up.

“Every day, people ask me how I raised such great kids. They are truly amazed when I tell them that there was no magic to their upbringing,” Ivana says in a statement on the book, which will be published Sept. 12 by Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster.

“I was a tough and loving mother who taught them the value of a dollar, not to lie, cheat or steal, respect for others, and other life lessons that I’ll share now in Raising Trump, along with unfiltered personal stories about Don, Eric, and Ivanka from their early childhood to becoming the ‘first sons and daughter,’ ” the businesswoman adds.

She is an amazing mom, teacher and inspiration to all of us. We are incredibly grateful to have grown up in such a loving and close family.”
