NBA Star Metta World Peace Releases New Children’s Book
NBA star Metta World Peace now wears two hats. The athlete recently wrote a children’s book called “Metta’s Bedtime Stories.”
The book features a collection of short stories for bedtime. The book is written to resonate to multicultural readers.
“That was important in this book in bringing people together and closer,” said Metta.
“If you get a Latino, Asian or white kid reading a book full of black kids, it’s not relatable. We wanted something where everybody could relate to,” he said.
The 33-year-old has four children of his own. Watch Metta read an entry from his book to a group of children on “Access SportsNet: Lakers” episode. The book is available on Amazon.
