Metta World Peace has released a children's book entitled "Metta's Bedtime Stories."

Available via createspace.com, "Metta's Bedtime Stories" was "written to help children think about daily events in a positive light."

World Peace, formerly Ron Artest, has played the last four seasons with the Lakers -- winning his first title in 2010 against the Boston Celtics.

Outside of basketball, World Peace is a spokesman for mental health, currently collaborating with the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health with his "Talk It Out" campaign.

His children's book includes five stories: "I'm Afraid of the Dark," "Mud in My Bed," "One Wish," "Reach for the Sky" and "Tomorrow."

"These stories will show everyone that you can always have a better day tomorrow, if you have a hopeful heart and keep positive thoughts," according to createspace.com.

World Peace authored the book with help from Heddrick McBride along with illustrations by HH Pax.
