First, it was Tori Spelling who announced she'd be penning a children's book. Now, Jennie Garth, her "90210" co-star, says she'll also be writing stories for kids.

Somewhere, Brenda Walsh is silently shedding a tear.

Garth, a.k.a. Beverly-Hills-teen-temptress-turned-high-school-guidance-counselor Kelly Taylor, tells Us Weekly she recently signed a two-book deal that will be aimed at 3- to 8-year-olds.

Mom to three daughters -- Luca, 12, Lola, 7, and Fiona, 3 -- Garth, 37, says to look for the books in stores in February 2011.

The actress, who also starred in the TV series "What I Like About You," married "Twilight" actor Peter Facinelli in 2001.

"We are really great parents, if I do say so myself!" she tells Us Weekly. "We really take it as a full-time commitment and job ... We take it very seriously."
