Στα ευπώλητα των Τάιμς της Ν.Υόρκης το παιδικό βιβλίο του ΛεΜπρον Τζέιμς

Μεγάλη χαρά έδωσε η είδηση στον ΛεΜπρον Τζέιμς: το παιδικό βιβλίο «I PROMISE» το οποίο συνδημιούργησε με την εικονογράφο Νίνα Μάτα (Nina Mata), κάνοντας ντεμπούτο στην αγορά βρέθηκε στον κορυφή της λίστας ευπώλητων παιδικών εικονογραφημένων βιβλίων των New York Times.

Η πρώτη υπόσχεση που δίνεται στο τρέιλερ  για το βιβλιαράκι είναι «ΥΠΟΣΧΟΜΑΙ… να πηγαίνω σχολείο», μια ευθεία αναφορά στα παιδικάτα του άσου των Λος Άντζελες Λέικερς.

When I first read Lebrons message I knew how special this book would be and how it needed to be read by every kid we could reach. These are the type of mantras that set you up for success. I hope you take these words to heart and carry them with you especially in your most challenging seasons. Work hard, work smarter, stay your course and don’t listen to your doubt or the doubt of others. • • • • I have so much to say about this incredible opportunity. First off, just like the overall message of “I Promise”, this book was not handed to me. I did not “luck out”. I worked hard for it and after months of deliberation I earned the honor of illustrating these beautiful words. Thank you again @kingjames and @ljfamfoundation @ipromiseschool for trusting me to co create this book with you. This was also created by one of the strongest teams I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. This book wouldn’t soar with out our talented editor @louiieee1122 and it wouldnt shine without the art Direction of Rick Farley (that cover is ALL him ❤️) and where would we be without our incredible marketing team like @sarilampert SOOO many people behind one great title. And of course I would not be anywhere without my incredible agency @the_cat_agency who are nothing short of family to me. Happy book birthday to everyone involved!!! Go team!! 🥳👏🏽👏🏽😁 I sincerely hope we get to work together again soon. ❤️ • • • • • A HUGE Thank you teachers, librarians, parents, guardians, and lover of books for sharing this title with your community ❤️ #striveforgreatness #lebronjames #ipromisebook #kidlitartist #kidlitart #childrensbooks #kidsbookstagram #kidsbookswelove #bookstagram #weneeddiversebooks #childrensbookstagram #childrensbookillustrator #picturebooksofinstagram #picturebooksofinstagram #picturebooksaremyjam Posted @withregram • @ljfamfoundation Who’s getting their book TOMORROW?! ✋📖 It’s a must have! 😊 #IPROMISE drops tomorrow for you and your family at @walmart and other retailers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #books #bookstagram
