Green Bay Packer Donald Driver is set to release his second children's book, "Quickie handles a loss," on Friday, Nov. 27.
A follow up to his 2008 debut, "Quickie makes the team," this story also features the character Quickie (a younger version of the Packers all-time leading receiver) but it deals with "an important life lesson for children of all ages about how to deal with having a good friend move away."
"I wrote 'Quickie handles a loss' because I wanted to give kids an important lesson, that no matter what difficulties you are dealt in life, you can, with the help of friends and family get through those problems and grow from them," said Driver in a news release from Lammi Sports Management.
The book will be available at several locations including Goodwill retail stores, Piggly Wiggly, the Packer Pro Shop, Barnes & Noble and Shopko stores. The book also is available online at Driver's Web site DonaldDriver80.com.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Donald Driver Foundation and their continued mission to improve the lives and educational opportunities of families in need.
