My Review: 

“I Promise” By LeBron James is a moving and inspirational picture book that is written in a first-person narrative that lays out clear objectives for young people to strive for in life. The text reminds readers to be strong courageous, and resilient. Each page is a different set of advice that readers can use to succeed. The text is filled with good solid values covering all aspects of life. like trying new things, asking questions, being kind, and respecting your elders. The illustrations by Nina Mata are absolutely stunning! She does an amazing job showing a diverse group of children and adults. The back of the book has a note from LeBron James encouraging readers to make promises and hold themselves accountable to those promises. “I Promise” has an important message of empathy and growth mindset that should be shared in every classroom and home.
