LeBron James is releasing two children books with Harper Collins.
The first book, “I Promise,” which comes out later this year, is a picture book inspired by the “values and initiatives” of his foundation’s I Promise program in Akron, Ohio.
The beautifully illustrated book’s message is simple, yet powerful:
“Success starts with the promises we make to ourselves and our community today.”
The second book, which is already in the works, is a middle grade novel that is due out in 2021.
“Books have the ability to teach, inspire and bring people together. That’s why these books, and the opportunity to get children and parents reading together, mean so much to me,” James said in a statement. “Most importantly, we wanted to make sure these stories are ones that every single kid can see themselves in. I Promise is powerful in that way and I can’t wait for people to read it.”
