Candace Cameron Bure must be one of the hardest working celebrities in America. Her latest project is a children's book called Grow, Candace, Grow and she visited the set of ABC's Good Morning America today to talk about it. But that's not all. She told the hosts she is planning to do a whopping seven Hallmark movies this year!

The 43-year-old mother of three is evidently taking advantage of the extra time she has on her hands now that she and her husband are empty-nesters, as we wrote about here. This book is the second in a series of children's books and in it she endeavors to teach children the virtue of patience, through the vehicle of a strong-willed little heroine.

There are plenty of personal family ties in this one. First off, Cameron Bure dedicated the book to her father, Robert Cameron, who was a public school teacher for 35 years. And second, though the protagonist is named for her, the character was inspired by Cameron Bure's now 21-year-old daughter.

"She's actually a lot more like my daughter, Natasha, who's really spunky. Natasha was always a strong-willed child and kind of did her own thing."

Natasha Bure, by the way, is now doing her mother's thing, so to speak, following in her foot steps as an actress. And she has evidently come around, too, on that strong-willed front, running the offers she gets by her mother before taking them, according Cameron Bure.

As to Candace's own show biz projects, with the recent end of Fuller House, she is now turning more of her attention to Hallmark productions, including her Aurora Teagarden Mysteries: Cameron Bure will make four of those this year. And Hallmark wouldn't be the same without her in one of its annual Christmas movies, so fans will be pleased to learn they can expect to see her in a couple of those during this year's Yuletide season.
