Israel Idonije writing children’s books
May 20th, 2017
Add children’s book author to Israel Idonije’s post-NFL resume.
The former Bears defensive lineman who runs a few businesses in town has just published two books in his DreamKidz Adventures series.
“I wanted to be able to inspire, motivate and educate the kids in my life,” he says, referring to his young nieces and godchildren.
DreamKidz has taken him on a book tour of sorts. You may see him in the kids’ section of a book store or at a child-care center reading from the two books. They’re titled “I Love Me” and “I Love Football!”
