For those of you with young children who like to read, Shaquille O'Neal may soon have some literature for you to choose from.

The retired big man has signed on to author a new series of books called Little Shaq and will be based on a series of adventures Shaq experienced during his childhood with his cousin Barry.

“I am excited to be working with Bloomsbury on this project that will reach young, independent readers,” O’Neal said in a statement. “Education is a cause that is very important to me and I love that this series will combine reading with my love of basketball. It’s a slam dunk for literacy!”

The first book is slated to hit shelves in 2015.
