To read an uplifting and encouraging book that empowers every single person who reads it – students at school; mom or dad at home; teacher in the classroom; brother, sister, grandma, grandpa and everyone in between – is a powerful thing.

LeBron extended that empowering experience to kids and adults across the world with an exclusive reading of his New York Time’s bestselling children’s book I Promise during a special episode of Walmart’s Storytime series.

Broadcast on Walmart’s Facebook page, families were able to come together virtually to read the inspiring, rhyming words intended to uplift and encourage all to work hard and dream big.

With LeBron’s words coming to life with the scrollingImage of LeBron Storytime illustrations by the incomparable Nina Mata, it was an experience that saw students, teachers and families all submersed in a story, dreaming together, for a few moments in time.

The Storytime episode on I Promise led to an inpouring of students sharing their own promises and teachers bringing the message to their classrooms in refreshingly fun and creative ways.

To get the youth – kids of every age, every color and every walk of life – excited about reading and passionate about their goals was LeBron’s dream with I Promise. To see that coming to life is extraordinary and something the LeBron James Family Foundation is working hard to continue.

Thank you to our family at Walmart for inviting us into your magical Storytime series and to Harper Collins for always believing in these promises.
