Dungy, wife will co-author 8 children’s books

Former NFL coach Tony Dungy keeps finding new ways to promote

his family-friendly message.

The latest: Writing children’s books with his wife, Lauren.

The husband and wife handed out their new book ”You Can Be A

Friend” to students from Indianapolis on Thursday, then read to

those students at a local theater.

It’s part of a new, eight-book series that the Dungys hope will

put a greater emphasis on reading – and influences parents about

how to teach their children life’s most important lessons. Lauren

Dungy is a former public school teacher.

The two made earlier stops in Camden, N.J., and Pittsburgh and

were scheduled to be in Tampa, Fla., later Thursday. The tour also

will stop in Minneapolis.
