To say Alicia Silverstone is excited about her upcoming book, The Kind Mama, is an understatement. Eight months before its release, the nature-loving mom — son Bear Blu is now 2 — announced she was working on the new project on her blog while also thanking fans for all their support.

“I want to show women that a kind of lifestyle can also be the key to getting knocked up — without drama — and having a super healthy, super vibrant, soul-quenching pregnancy, birth and mama-hood,” the actress told PEOPLE.

“In my new book, I’m sharing the wisdom I’ve received from some of the smartest obstetricians, midwives, pediatricians and friends I’ve been lucky enough to know.”

Silverstone is clearly on a roll. She released The Kind Diet in March 2011, recently launched a breast milk-sharing program and is also debuting a diet cookbook late next year.

Not sure if you’ve had a chance to take the little ones to see Disney’s new film Monsters University, which hit theaters on Friday, but it’s great fun for the whole family.

Lovable characters Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) and James P. Sullivan (John Goodman) are back along with a few new pals Art (Charlie Day), Johnny (Nathan Fillion) and Claire (Aubrey Plaza). And the movie follows their journey from college rivals to fast friends — Revenge of the Nerds-style.
