Jessica Alba's Coffee Bean Java Jumpstart

Posted Wednesday April 11, 2012 4:40 PM GMT

Getting another busy day underway, Jessica Alba was spotted making a quick stop at a Beverly Hills Coffee Bean on Wednesday (April 11).

The "Spy Kids" actress wore a cute black hat, black leather boots and a floral spring dress with a black blazer as she proceeded to get her caffeine fix ahead of the day's agenda.

The outing comes as Miss Alba has recently decided to do something special for National Poetry Month by joining more than a dozen other celebrity parents to participate in poetry readings that will air on the Disney and Disney Junior channels this month.

The mother of two dove into her Hispanic heritage by selecting a Mexican folk song, "De Colores" (meaning "Of Colors"), for her segment - which will air a number of times on both channels, with one of the time slots being April 29 at 6:55am EDT on the Disney Channel.

Alba has said this project is "just a really great way to introduce kids to poetry," including those too young to read and is also a form of, "genius of 'edu-tainment,' a new word I've been introduced to since I've become a mother," defining the word as "tricking your kids into learning."

The 30-year-old has her own collection of poetry but admits that, through the years, her writing has changed, saying, "I have a lot of teen angst on paper, now I just kind of make up songs for my girls. I have little poems that I sing to them before they go to sleep, to the tune of 'Twinkle Twinkle (Little Star)."
