Through simple and lively rhymes and vibrant and cheerful illustrations, “I Promise” is a picture book that may inspire students to set goals for future success through the promises they make to themselves today. Written by NBA champion LeBron James, it shares promises that inspire accountability, social responsibility, growth mindset, and resilience. The book is suitable as a read-aloud in a primary classroom. It lends itself well to encourage discussions about goal-setting, also possibly inspiring a collaboratively created classroom set of promises, like that of The LeBron James Family Foundation’s I Promise School, on which the story is based.
