“Just Because” (Viking Books for Young Reader, 32 pp., $19.99) is written by McConaughey, illustrated by Renée Kurilla, and recommended for children 4-8 years old. Its website describes it as “a soulful and irreverent collection of life lessons that empowers readers, big and small, to celebrate how we are all full of possibility.”

McConaughey’s 2020 book “Greenlights” — a frequently philosophical collection of autobiographical stories and poems, developed from journals — was a best-seller.
