LeBron James is expanding the I Promise Mission by releasing a children’s book nationwide!!

I PROMISE, a picture book inspired by the values and initiatives of his foundation, will be released across the United States on Tuesday, Aug. 11.

“Books have the ability to teach, inspire and bring people together,” James said in a press release. “That’s why these books, and the opportunity to get children and parents reading together, mean so much to me. 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.”
